Strangely, I can't reproduce this bug on py2exe 0.6.6 and Python 2.4 at all (even when I have optimize=2 and bundle_files=1). What options and what python and py2exe versions are you using? Also, this doesn't seems like a bug anyway, since what you experience seems to be optimizing with stripping of docstrings. Try using optimize=0, maybe that would help?
