I did this a while back, and I can't remember exactly. Therefore, I may only 
be able to give you a push in the right direction until someone else can 
answer it fully.

However, I think you have to force the db into the py2exe compile. I think 
it's something like this:

--force-imports dbhash

Try this and see if it works.
