[PyKDE] QWaitCondition seems to cause deadlock

Hi, this is shin.
It's my first time to post to this ml.
I'm a beginner of PyQt.
PyQt is very exciting!!
But I have a problem on my multi-thread script.
This script uses Qt thread API, and uses QMutex and
QWaitCondition to synchronize a GUI thread and a worker
When the worker thread calls QWaitCondition.wait(), GUI
thread also stops running.
It seems to be in deadlock state.
The worker's code is as follows:
# waits until GUI thread processes the posted event.
condition.wait(mutex) # <-- stops everything!!
GUI thread processes events as follows:
def customEvent(self, event)
# do something ...
I've been at a loss for a few days.
But today I found that Python Global Interpreter Lock
needs to be released and reacquired around blocking
operation according to Python C/API Reference Manual.
And I also found that QWaitCondition::wait() in
qwaitcondition.sip has no annotation while
QThread::sleep() has /ReleaseGIL/ annotation.
I think that QWaitCondition::wait() must have /ReleaseGIL/
annotation, is that right?
Do You Yahoo!?
