No, the timer continues -- but I have never got the BadWindow
message, and the dialog does disappear.

When I comment this out, it looks as if the timer restarts itself.

Okay, I took a good long look at it. The first problem is in the
show() method of the animated label -- this gets called when cancel
is pressed. For the moment, don't ask me why, but it is, and it restarts
Furthermore, when the dialog is deleted, the timers appear to
be still running. Apparently, killTimers() doesn't descend into
the dialog's children. So I kept a ref to the animated label and
called killTimers() on it at the right place. See attached script.
It kills that timer dead.
As for the proper way to approach this problem -- I'm not sure. I think
I would subclass QProgressDialog and have that handle the killing of the
timer of the animated label.
