Sorry, didn't notice before. You're actually not starting a new thread.
You call "self.run()" from the constructor of the QThread subclass, but
the constructor is executed inside the GUI thread. Thus run() runs in
the GUI thread and the constructor of BusyThread never returns. The
proper API to start a QThread is using QThread.start()


You get along very well with everyone except animals and people.
