Try to place a copy of your pygame dir from Lib/site-packages into the
newly compiled Lib/site-packages dir for stackless....

There are some modules that needs to be compiled with the Stackless
includes... some of them are psyco and PyQt... I've tested them both.

Take a look on GMane... http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.stackless

It indexes the messages and let you search.
