I finally got around to trying this myself but everything worked fine 
for me. I did this
$ mzc --exe wormhole wormhole.ss
Which created wormhole.exe and ran fine( well I had to add (run) to the 
bottom of the module)

Can you show what options you used with mzc? Also can you paste all your 
source so I can reproduce your problem?
