This is becoming an FAQ.
The currently available (non-web) database application development
frameworks for Python are:
Defis http://sourceforge.net/projects/defis/ (Russian only)
Dabo (they're about to release 1.0 for Pycon), Pypapi, Camelot, SQLkit
seem to be the most actively developed and best documented ones.
OpenERP and Tryton are ERP systems that can also be used as
frameworks for non-ERP custom applications.
