Sweet, that was it. For future reference, if you want to use conch ssh in a 
PyInstaller frozen program, you need to add a file 
$PyInstallerHome/hooks/hook-twisted.conch.ssh.py that has the line:

hiddenimports = [     "Crypto.Cipher.AES"     ]

or with cx_Freeze add --include-modules=Crypto.Crypto.AES to your FreezePython 

Like Ralf said, you might need more ciphers based on your ssh config.

Thanks guys (Ralf in particular), I don't know if I ever would have figured 
that one out, and using python -v is a neat trick to remember for similarly 
weird situations.
