[PyQt] crash when not saving pointer to KTextEditor.View.selectionRange() result

Since PyQt4.5.x / KDE 4.3, this segfaults on my system (view is a 
KTextEditor.View instance):

start = view.selectionRange().start()

but when I write:

selRange = view.selectionRange()
start = selRange.start()

it does not crash. Why is this? The value saved in start is just a 
KTextEditor.Cursor instance.

w best regards,
