I saw a post in the mailing list (
where it suggests that you could manually call sip.setdeleted() from the
destroyed signal that is sent when a widget is destructed.

We are running into a similar issue so I tried to implement the above idea
on widgets that are in memory but were not created by python.

When running our test suite, I started hitting "C/C++ object deleted"
exceptions in completely unrelated places (Building designer widgets where
on one line it would define a QFrame, then on the next line when it tried
to use the QFrame, it would say the object was deleted, for example)

Could this be a case of the same memory being reused after an object is
removed and sip not detecting that there is a new object in place of the

It seemed like a promising technique but it looks like we'll have to find
another work around.
