I'am actually not sure, if it is a bug or a feature, but after installing py2exe py2exe-0.6.8 (python 2.5.2, win XPh) I noticed some differences to the executable package produced by the previous version.
Some of the pyd files seem to be duplicated with slightly different names, e.g.
wx._stc.pyd next to the original _stc.pyd or
wx._core_.pyd next to _core_.pyd
and some other wx pyd files - over 4 MB extra data in the given app (the original size without duplicates - approx. 19 MB. The resulting executables work identicaly with or without these duplicates.
These pairs of files have exactly the same size, modification time an other attributes.
Is there maybe some option to disable such circular packaging of extra files? Or are these files realy needed somehow?
