Issue #20 resolved

Busy cursor for a long time when running .pyw script on Windows XP

I forward here the issue from python bug tracker, as most likely the issue is caused by this launcher which appeared in 3.3. Read the whole message to find out, but there 2 main reasons why it's related to launcher:

1) in 3.2 running .pyw scripts doesn't have this bug 2) in 3.3, running through direct "pythonw" command instead of default launcher for .pyw is free of the bug too
