I don't know if this will be of any help, but I have a multi-threaded 
application that gets information from the Internet and updates 
periodically. It uses PyKDE and PyQt. I've notice that it hangs what 
seems randomly. I put in many debug print statements to see where it is 
hanging and it isn't predictable. I don't use postEvent and I don't know 
  enough to know if some of the KDE calls I use is using these events. 
It could just be me, I want to get to the bottom of this. So I'll be 
digging deeper in the next few days to see if I could find something. I 
don't remember it doing this with previous versions either.

I'll post here if I find something out. I'm not using the Debian builds, 
I'm running Gentoo.
