Yes for me it seems to be the same problem. Qt can be run with or 
without event loop. Most of the application are running into a loop too, 
and calling the qt loop will then freeze the application until the user 
close the qt window(and so stop the loop).
It can be handle by calling the Qt loop in a separated thread or by 
"binding" the Qt loop to the application one.
I dont really see any other solution if you want to use the qt event
