Okay, thanks for explaining that.

Just to get things clear though - this one fix will prevent *all*
abstract base classes from being instantiated, yes? This looks pretty
tricky for something like QButton. Somehow, in the chain of inheritance
from QPushButton to QObject, sip has to decide which classes can be
instantiated, and which not. No wonder you had trouble thinking of a
way to do this :)
