It's created using designer, so there is nothing special about that. You can 
get the code from http://code.google.com/p/ra-blog/source but I am not really 
sure it runs on any box other than mine, though :-(

It's the window defined in BartleBlog/ui/mainwindow.ui

If I run only the Ui_mainwindow.py it works just fine, too. It's only when 
it's running as part of the main program.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. 
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, 
by definition, not smart enough to debug it. --Brian W. Kernighan
