[PyQt] KGlobalAccel, again

I'm having the same problem as [1] when using KGlobalAccel. In a
nutshell, the program crashes when pressing the configured global

  [1] http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/pipermail/pyqt/2006-May/013268.html

I tried adding /Transfer/ to the KGlobalAccel constructor as suggested
there, but the result is the same (patched the PyKDE version in Debian,
3.15.2+20060422; 3.16.0 gave me a compiler error when building).

I would really really really like to see this fixed. If there's anything
I can do to help with that, please let me know.

Here's a sample program that shows the issue: run it and press Ctrl-Alt-U.

import sys

import kdeui
import kdecore

def main():
    application = kdecore.KApplication(sys.argv, 'test app')
    main_window = MainWindow(None, 'main window')

class MainWindow(kdeui.KMainWindow):
    def __init__ (self, *args):
        kdeui.KMainWindow.__init__(self, *args)

        self.global_accel = kdecore.KGlobalAccel(self)
        self.global_accel.insert('action', 'Action', '',
            kdecore.KShortcut('Ctrl+Alt+U'), kdecore.KShortcut(),


    def slot_action(self):
        print "Inside slot_action()"

if __name__ == '__main__':
