python2.3 canvas.py
Qt: QApplication: Warning argv[0] == 'canvas.py' is relative.
In order to dispatch events correctly Mac OS X may require applications 
to be run with the *full* path to the executable.
QMenuBar: Not sure how to handle accelerator 0x1010 (Home)
QMenuBar: Not sure how to handle accelerator 0x1010 (Home)

The canvas window pops up. It's in the background and does not seem to 
receive events. But hey, it works :-)
I've tried to run several of the other examples and I get the same 

I fired up one of my larger apps giving the full path to the start 
file. It no longer prints the warning, but the result is the same.
The application it self  works tough, I just can't interact with it.

btw. on my 867mhz 12" Powerbook with 640mb ram, "from qt import *" 
takes aprox 8 seconds.

That's it for tonight. I'll do some more testing tomorrow. Thanks Phil!
