Apparently, various tidying up operations are carried out when the library is
unloaded which wouldn't occur otherwise.

You have to insert code to do the right thing somewhere.

It seems that the easiest route would be to create a subclass of QWidget to
take into account anything that gets introduced in your Python classes. Of
course, you could probably modify the wrapper for QWidget to do this but it
might be better to try out the approach before making changes to PyQt. If it
all works then maybe Phil will take it on board. I'm sure he'd like to see 
working code first. ;-)

At least with this approach, if it's even practical, no one has to patch and
rebuild their existing PyQt setup to get it to work.

All the best,
