[PyQt] emit python object as signal argument, get float in the slot

For some reason when I emit a signal using the short-circuit method to give it
a python object, when it reaches the other end I have a float. This is only
happening in Kubuntu (feisty), with python 2.5, pyqt4.2 and qt4.2.3. In
Mandriva, with slightly older python (but same qt and pyqt), the code works
fine. Is this a python 2.5 problem?
Here's the code:
In my main window class:
QtCore.QObject.connect( self.__proxy, QtCore.SIGNAL("chat"),
In the QObject that emits the signal: (This is a class that inherits QObject
solely to give me the emit method)
def PostEvent(self, theEvent):
if theEvent.atype == "CHAT":
self.emit( QtCore.SIGNAL("chat"), theEvent)
And when received by the chatShow method, it is of type float.
The whole code can be had from
The files are:
libeugenics/network/events/chat_event.py <-- an instance of this class is the
argument that's being converted to float
Did I do something braindead, or what? The same code in Windows with Python
2.5 (same qt and pyqt versions) works. Only in Kubuntu am I suffering.
