Description of problem:
Upon running hwbrowser, a window briefly displays, before disappearing and a
Python error message is printed to standard output/error.

This bug sounds exactly like except it affects Phoebe.

Incidentally, this system (Toshiba Satellite 3000 laptop) has fancy hardware
such as wireless, firewire, usb, smartmedia, pcmcia cards etc etc.

Additional information contains the text/message that was printed to stderr/stdout.
