There are two problems with the code:

1. Don't use "short-circuit" signals for communication between threads. The slot
will be called from the same thread, not via the queued connection from the main
thread, which is probably what you want. Use
QtCore.SIGNAL("parsingComplete(PyObject*)") instead.

2. Keep references to the emit arguments, otherwise they will get deleted and
replaced with a different objects that reuse the same memory block.
