Annoing Windows XP issue : _except_handler4_common could not be located

Thanks to Dev Adventures for this one.

I had one of the most annoining Windows XP issue. It happened while building a py2exe project on Windows Vista, and installing it on Windows XP.

The issue, a most cryptic error message:

"The procedure entry point _except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll"

The solution:

Remove the mswsock.dll from the distribution.
