I can't confirm this, here designer sets Base and Window role for the 3
palettes one has (active,inactive and disabled) and both uic4 and
pyuic4 translate these into the same code which exactly reflects this.

In particular my pyuic code doesn't look like

>      palette = QtGui.QPalette()
>      palette.setColor(QtGui.QPalette.Active,QtGui.QPalette.ColorRole(0),
> QtGui.QColor(0,0,0))

this. I suspect that there's both a bug in Qt designer and in pyuic4
which got resolved already - I'm using Qt4.2 here together with a not
very old PyQt4 snapshot.


Your temporary financial embarrassment will be relieved in a surprising manner.
