pythonw is just a shell script.  You're embedding Python, it's not  
even an option.  You must use an application bundle in order to  
communicate with WindowServer.

You probably shouldn't be embedding Python in the first place.. Much  
easier that way, because py2app can create the application bundle for  
you, and you don't have to deal with all of the initialization/ 
finalization for Python.
