Brian, do you expect us to build a runable script from your artefacts?
Please keep in mind, that due to the unlimited permutations of OS, Qt, sip,
and PyQt versions, it's unpossible to estimate the behavior of even the
simplest code fragments in all circumstances (apart from: QWidget.show()
will most likely *not* format your harddisk).
Therefor, it's a long standing best practice here to provide a self
contained minimum example, the exploits the issue.
BTW, in my case, 70% of all issues vanish during this exercise, e.g. it's
mostly a "RTFM" or "between keyboard and chair problem"..., another > 20%
by looking into Qt itself.
I estimate the portion of real sip and/or PyQt issues below 3%.
