Does the service really load your app?
Try to launch the application manually from xterm using the same command that you wrote into the service file.
Does it come up then?

No, this is a known bug. Somewhere between SDL and Hildon, this information gets lost. Identical on all pygame apps.
(NOT in Pymaemo, see my bug report in https://garage.maemo.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1597&group_id=40&atid=229)
