Okay, only Colin responded so far, and while he's not experiencing the 
problem, he's using a cocoa based build of Qt. 

This is not an option for me, since I have to target 10.4 also. In order to 
confirm the problem is not from Qt's precompiled version, I've compiled 
4.5.2 myself and six hours later, I can reproduce the problem. 

As it stands, it's dependant from a carbon based build, and the PyQt side 
side of the problem is trivial enough, that this is definitely a Qt 
problem. It would be nice, if somebody from the kind audience running a 
carbon based build could reproduce the problem and call back. 

Meanwhile I'm going to prepare a C++ version of the problem.

Thanks in advance,
