I've got all of that in place as well.  It didn't start doing this until I
wedged the shell script in front of the startup of the Python.

I took out the shell script, replaced it with the main python script, and at
the top of the main python script I placed:

import sys

That way it could find it's include files stored in the other directory.
Everything works fine again, including the dbus integration and taskbar

That's the Best way to learn!  What I want to do is learn how to do kinetic
scrolling without needing full screen mode.  Not a priority, but that's
something I hope to learn from your app soon.  Neat stuff.

The loading indicator should go away when you create the HildonProgram
