[PyQt] (no subject)

In trying to get a very basic PyQt5 QML example
run, I found that I get a segmentation fault.  I verified that it only
seems deal with displaying QML since an example without a window
<http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/PyQt5/qml.html> runs fine.  I tried the
following minimial test:

    import sys
    from PyQt5.QtCore import QUrl
    from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QApplication
    from PyQt5.QtQml import QQmlApplicationEngine

    # Main Function
    if __name__ == '__main__':
        app = QApplication(sys.argv)
        engine = QQmlApplicationEngine("simple.qml")


    import QtQuick 2.5
    import QtQuick.Controls 1.4

    ApplicationWindow {
        width: 300
        height: 200
        title: "Simple"
        visible: true

When I run this application, a window appears for a split second before
closing like in the more detailed example, and I receive `Segmentation
fault` in the console (and nothing more).

Running from GDB shows that the `QSGRenderThread` is receiving the SIGSEGV:

    (gdb) run snowman_qt.py
    Starting program: /usr/bin/python3 snowman_qt.py
    [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

    [New Thread 0x7fffdbfff700 (LWP 17203)]

    Thread 5 "QSGRenderThread" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    [Switching to Thread 0x7fffdbfff700 (LWP 17203)]

"nouveau") at ../string/strstr.c:63
    63 ../string/strstr.c: No such file or directory.

If I run the QML file from a C++ application
<https://github.com/thp/pyotherside/issues/63>, there is no segmentation
fault and the application works.  Note that I'm using PyQT without
PyOtherside, but the symptoms seem similar.

Is there a way to get more information to continue debugging?

I am running Python 3.5.2 on Linux Mint 18.  My QT version is 5.7.0, my
PyQt version is 5.7, and my SIP version is 4.18.1.

This is a copy of my stackoverflow question
and I apologize for spamming this issue.  I'm trying to convince a small
team to look at QML over HTML5 and this is a blocker.
