It will be fixed in tonight's snapshot. A workaround is to pass a dummy 
argument in the second ctor call.

Note that PyQt4 handles QApplication differently and delays calling the dtor 
until the interpreter exits. So, in the above case, you will have two 
QApplication instances existing at the same time.
