So what you are saying is that you wrote an application that is run
during startup, and on failure, you get a dialog that pops up to tell
you that a failure has occurred, and you want to get rid of the dialog.

First questions: how is this dialog being brought up?  Are you making it
happen with some sort of GUI toolkit (like wxPython or tk)?  Is it
automatically happening if your script raises an exception?  Give more
