Your fix looks good to me. Indeed, "technical" ones must be not be included as 
compiled. Only with --recurse-stdlib they will be compiled, but the interpreter 
won't initialize if they cannot be loaded.

Thanks a lot for the patch. That was hard stuff, please send more and let me 
know to which name/email I should attribute it, if you want to. I am putting 
this on factory branch, but it's totally hotfix material once I choose to make 
one for something slightly more important.

After some investigating, I've attached a patch which appears to fix the issue. When --
recurse-stdlib was used with --standalone, C compiled modules were overriding their 
pickled versions, which are required on interpreter startup. Allowing 'technical' 
modules to take precedence fixed the issue.
Whether this is the 'best' fix is debatable - I know that not all of the 'technical' 
modules are actually required for interpreter startup. Possible alternatives include 
keeping a whitelist of modules that must be pickled and added on startup, or having the 
C versions of such modules made available on startup (if possible).

On Windows and Mac OSX, Python programs compiled with Nuitka still have dependancies 
with the original Python installation (mainly the core Python modules - encodings, 
codecs, io, etc). Moving the executable to a computer that doesn't have Python 
installed (Or renaming the Python installation path) causes interpreter initialization
