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
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=61917 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.
