    Hi, I have ran into a problem with py2exe 0.5.0 and shelve in python
    2.3.3. The script works fine standalone, but not with py2exe.

    Does anyone have a solution of workaround for this? Thanks much.

    import shelve

    f = shelve.open('test.txt')
    f['hello'] = 'world'
    f.close()
    f = shelve.open('test.txt')
    print f.keys()
    print f.values()
