py2app semi-standalone semi-works

Hello All,

I am trying to create a semi-standalone with the vendor python on OS X 
10.4 (python 2.3.5). I tried to include some packages with both 
--packages from the command and the 'packages' option in While 
the packages were nicely included in the application bundle in both 
cases (at Contents/Resources/lib/python2.3/), they were not found by 
python when the program was launched, giving the error:

     "ImportError: No module named [whatever module]"

Is this because semi-standalone is semi-broken or is it because I have 
semi-omitted something?

Any advice on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated and 
would greatly reduce the size of the download.
