Rats. I installed pyobjc 1.4.1a0 from SVN (right over the top of 1.4,
using "python setup.py bdist_mpkg --open"), and that didn't fix it
either. I'm using py2app 0.3.6.dev_r54 and setuptools 0.6c5, and I'm on
PPC, but other than that there are no differences in versions.

I know everything's landing in Python 2.5 and building from there (when
I type "python" at the prompt, it fires up my 2.5 install, whether I'm
root or steve), so I don't think my stock Python 2.3 is causing any

py2app version 2.x has never been anywhere near this machine, so I think
I'm okay there. I just tried the SillyBalls example, and I got this:
