Hmm, even outside Qgis, in Python, that crashes for me, and this is  
with the untouched Qt frameworks and PyQt stuff on my system (before  
bundling).  Qt 4.4.2, SIP 4.7.8, PyQt 4.4.4.

I don't really know anything about the inner (or outer) workings of Qt  
and PyQt, so I can't really do much about it except ask over in the  
PyQt list...
