Are you sure you are giving focus to the Combo box? Use the TAB key to give it
real focus. If you check, QComboBox' focus policy is KeyFocus, so it only gets
the focus through key presses, *not* mouse actions. If you want to change this,
use setFocusPolicy(QWidget.StrongFocus) so that it can get the focus through
either mouse or keyboard.
