I'm busy with it - I may have found a bug, but I can't put the finger to
it. It started with the problem that the string that came out of KConfig
were, of course, QStrings (but only the empty one? - I had four, three
filled, one empty). When I had put repr's around them, like:

 self.user=repr(self.config.readEntry("user", "boud"))
 self.password=repr(self.config.readEntry("password", ""))

I got past the log-in problem to MySQLdb, but now I don't get
any gui. Simple examples still work fine, but I am having a bit of
trouble with Kura, which is a bit larger and more complex. The app gets
started, I get an entry in the taskbar, but I don't get any interface
showing... Still, I'm sure I can find out exactly where it goes wrong -
it's probably my own fault. I'll be working on it this weekend, but 
because it's Sinterklaas I don't have a lot of time (got to prepare
the presents for the kids!)

It's painful all the same - I guess we have to use
self.text=repr(myTextBox.text()), too! Lots of trouble to go wrong and
make silly mistakes. Still, Unicode support should be worth it ;-).
