Could you post a short example, or at least your slotOK method and the connect 
stmt that goes with it? As you indicate, neither the sip files nor KDE ask 
for any arguments (other than the implicit 'self' of course) and neither does 
the C++ code sip generates (kdeuipart1.cpp, line 244,785 for those who want 
to play along).
