I seem to have the signal problems sorted out. But nothing is displayed in the 
window (need KParts.MainWindow?), which doesn't make sense since the code is 
based on the C++ app generated by KDevelop. It works and doesn't use 
KParts.MainWindow. Using KHTMLPart directly works though.

I updated the code at:


Also, you can't do multiple inheritence with PyQt/PyKDE which makes it a bit 
hard to add the DCOP interface to testapp in the same way as in the C++ 
version. But I've got a cunning plan to fix that. ;)

Thanks for your help Jim.
