[openlp-dev] Trouble with pyinstaller/ Jenkins account enable request.

For reference, it works when I downgraded from pyinstaller 3.3 to 3.1.1 
- though I also needed a pyinstaller hook for 
sqlalchemy.sql.default_comparator.  Not sure where to stick that, so 
I've just put it in hook-openlp.py for now.

Now to work out why it's crashing when I shut down OpenLP.
