If you start kcontrol from within a shell then you may get debugging output.
Certainly, pythonize should be telling you all sorts of things.

OK. I tried to produce a version of the launching library which would allow
arbitrary shared library modules to be imported, but I'm beginning to suspect
that the application calls dlopen without the necessary flag set for this to
be possible.

I'll experiment some more and see if I can't force it to work somehow. ;-)
