[PyKDE] QListBox selectedItem()

The code works fine over here.  If you want to know what index is selected 
rather than what item is selected, call list.currentItem() which returns an 
int index number.  

If it says AttributeError, you either have an outdated version of PyQt (which 
you do) or an outdated version of Qt (which I have no idea about...)  Note 
that Qt 3.0 does not support selectedItem()...  If you aren't going to update 
your distros Qt version, make sure you use the correct version of the docs.  
Also note that list.currentItem() *is* supported in 3.0.
