Tkinter vs. py2exe problem

Having a problem with "compiling" a Tkinter/python program using
py2exe (and pyinstaller, for that matter)...

I have several dialogs that are derived from the tkSimpleDialog.Dialog
class. These work just fine if run through the interpreter. When I
"compile" this with py2exe, I don't see any errors, and when I execute
the resulting program, it "appears" to work fine until I invoke one of
the derived dialogs.

Then, I get the "body" of the dialog, but no "OK" or "Cancel" button,
and I get the following exception:

AttributeError: MyDialog instance has no attribute
'buttonbox'

For reference, MyDialog is declared as follows:
#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

from Tkinter import *
import tkSimpleDialog
class MyDialog(tkSimpleDialog.Dialog)

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And my setup.py file looks like this:

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

setup(console=['tcgui3.py'])

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm invoking py2exe like this:

C:\python setup.py py2exe -p Tkinter -p tkSimpleDialog

Oh yeah... if it matters, I'm using Python 2.5.1 on Win XP, and py2exe
v1.4. I get the same problem using pyinstaller, except it doesn't
show the exception - it just fails to display the buttons.

Oh, and it fails when the setup() line in setup.py says
"setup(window=['tcgui3.py'])" as well. Same error.

Nevermind. I fixed it. I had a tkSimpleDialog.py in my local
directory that was typed in from an introductory text.

Apparently this was confusing Python. Removing that file, and letting
it find the tkSimpleDialog from Tk makes it work.

Thanks, anyway.

Ummm... Un-nevermind. I didn't fix it. It's still complaining.

Okay, here's a sample program that fails:

#------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/python

from Tkinter import *
import tkSimpleDialog

class MyDialog(tkSimpleDialog.Dialog):
def body(self, master):
Label(master, text="Label").grid()

def apply(self):
print "OK"

if __name__ == "__main__":
root = Tk()
md = MyDialog(root)
mainloop()

#--------------------------------------------

And here's the setup file I'm using with py2exe:

#--------------------------------------------
from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

opts = {
"py2exe": {
"includes":"tkSimpleDialog"
}
}

setup(windows=['hellogui.py'], options=opts)

#--------------------------------------------

Can't make it any simpler than that... I'm so confused!
