A quick & dirty way is to build with py2exe's --console option, and 
traceback will print in the DOS window (which will close if your app 
quits - so handle those exceptions).

Other suggestions:  run in a debugger, or log activities to a file or to 
a separate wxPython frame|statusbar|text control.
