Hmmm. I saw that on the dev board as well. I'm already doing that, but still 
no luck. I also tried their suggestion to use  QPEApplication(sys.argv[1:]) - 
again, no luck.

I'm writing the app such that it'll work with or without qtpe. Here's the 
rough framework I'm using. Any hints/tips would be good; I hadn't touched 
Python or Qt at all before this week. ^_^

from qt import *
   from qtpe import QPEApplication
   onzaurus = 1
except ImportError:
   onzaurus = 0

# Dialog to hold our Widget app if not qtpe...
class MainDlg(QDialog):
    def __init__(self,parent = None,name = None,modal = 0,fl = 0):
        if not name:
        self.mainLayout = QVBoxLayout(self,0,0,"MainDlgLayout")

if __name__ == '__main__':
   if onzaurus:
      app = QPEApplication(sys.argv[1:])
      win = MainWid()  # The main application widget
      apwid = win
      app = QApplication(sys.argv)
      win = MainDlg()
      apwid = MainWid(parent=win)
      QObject.connect(app, SIGNAL('lastWindowClosed()'), app, SLOT('quit()'))

# Gui Loop
