Thanks for the quick turnaround.
I've only recently started helping with PyQt maintenance, primarily in Debian,
but also some in Ubuntu. It was initially reported as a PyKDE bug.
Personally, I'm working my way through old bugs to try and get things caught

It was reported now because Alejandro had come up with a reduced test case and
I encouraged him to join the list and report it.
