Problem: Can no longer copy QColor objects

Occured with PYQT 3.17.2 and SIP 4.6

Can anybody kindly confirm whether this problem has vanished (or not?) 
with the latest SIP version (4.7)?




import qt
import sip
from copy import copy
print "PYQT version", qt.PYQT_VERSION_STR
print "SIP version", sip.SIP_VERSION_STR, sip.SIP_VERSION
c = qt.QColor()
print "__reduce__ ", c.__reduce__
print "__reduce_ex__", c. __reduce_ex__


2.4.3 (#1, Mar 29 2007, 10:11:04)
[GCC 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux)]

PYQT version 3.17.2
SIP version 4.6 263680
__reduce__  None
__reduce_ex__ None
