Does it crash if you run it from the command line with 'env -i' in front?

That clears out the environment and will be a lot closer to the rc.d environment.

If that doesn't show anything then you will have to try capturing stderr from the rc.d run as that will hopefully have the reason why Python is aborting (ie what Py_FatalError is complaining about).
