Apparantly it has been a problem with timerEvent() in QPEApplication 
which was commented out in PyQt 3.4 (a fact I only recently stumbled
over when I was diff'in 3.4 and 3.5 :-)

As a workaround I wrote the complete stylus handling in python -- which
worked fine. However, this is no longer necessary, because
setStylusOperation (aka the timerEvent() in QPEApplication) finally
works in PyQt 3.5.

I don't know if you explicitly looked into this, Phil, but I'm glad that
it is functional now :)
