I used KMainWindow as the "main" class for the kdeui module. I've attached a 
patch which fixes my particular situation. I'm not sure how it should be 
extended to the rest of PyKDE. I think I'll leave that one for Jim to figure 
out ;)

I may be misunderstanding the KDE docs and source code but it doesn't look 
like it's just creating an instance and then throwing it away, leaving the 
client to manage the lifetime of the instance. There's what appears to be a 
tree-like structure containing the various widgets created from the XML 
document. And the container function just finds a widget in that tree and 
returns it.

And my Python code does work now ;)

Thanks for all your help, Phil.
