On OSX 10.9, print stmts from a PyQt program (having a GUI, started by double-clicking on the app icon) go nowhere.  stderr and stdout are redirected to /dev/null ?  So to debug, you might want to start the app from a terminal.

Also, your app reporting a serious error should probably use the Python syslog module.  Then you (and your users) can view the log using  the OSX Console app.  But off the shelf, python is probably only reporting to stderr.
