[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.
