What difference will that make if the underlying code is the same?

But it's always good for me to check that it's not a bug in the current PyQt

a Qt snapshot then it's almost certainly a backwards compatibility bug in the
snapshot - so report it as such to Trolltech.
What I actually do is to start with the first release candidate.
