I have a question on FooTest: is having a QApplication instance enough in 
unittest to ensure emission of signals? Otherwise your problem does not only 
apply to using threads, but to any use of unittest with signals and slots.

As I said above, are signals emitted in the FooTest case? I ask because I've 
been meaning to add unittest to my applications but I was not sure how to 
handle the case of slots and signals.

I think I've tried this in the past and it didn't quite work for me.
