    investigating even further, I found out that if I add those two lines, I
also have to use self.centralWidget() as the parent to all the widgets that are
direct children of the window. I'll come up with a sed or perl script and post
it to the general inspection.

(Not so) Random fortune:
I am strongly convinced that to be a good developer one needs to be the first
user of what he develops. Quality will suffer, otherwise.
