If I understand things, that is possible (but unlikely)

That is impossible.

You really need a way to see the exception.  This could be as simple as 
hacking your app to open a file and set sys.stderr and sys.stdout to it. 
  Rebuild the package, and try again on the same machine, this time 
looking at the file.

Or simply install Python on that machine and run from source code, just 
to determine the error.
