One problem. I install Python with the start menu entries in
Programs\Programming\Python 2.3, rather than the default of
Programs\Python 2.3. The old pywin32 releases found this location
(from the regstry, I guess) and put their start menu entries in there.

The new one not only uses the default, Programs\Python 2.3,
regardless, but it also fails to handle the lack of that directory
correctly, raising an error rather than creating it if it doesn't
