pipedream.py breaks when compiled...

Does anyone know why a script that uses pipedream (which uses 
win32pipe.popen3()) will run a script, but hang when compiled?

A script that uses pipedream.py won't run when compiled with McMillan or 
py2exe; it appears that the client process (an interactive FORTRAN/DOS exe) 
returns the first screen of text, gets to its first prompt, then exits.

pipedream.py does:
         c = os.read(self._in.fileno(), 1)
and just hangs, no error.

Anyone have an idea?
