Right, it is without doubt related to PyQt, because upgrading that is
what caused the problem. This is my last *working* state:

  sip - 4.7.6
  Qt  - 4.4.0
  PyQt - 4.3.3 <-- note this
  KDE  - 4.0.80
  PyKDE4 - 4.0.2 (from Riverbank)

If I upgrade PyQt to 4.4.2, things stop working. Also note how running
PyQt 4.3 against Qt 4.4 works, and PyKDE4 against KDE 4.0.80 too.

So, Jim, sounds like a change in PyQt, yes. No idea if this could be
related to the fix Simon mentions or not.
