In this case, you get an "undefined symbol" from the system. This means
that the module you're trying to load was built believing that there's a

    QTableItem::content() const

somewhere in one library of the system (that's the "human readable" form
of _ZNK10QTableItem7contentEv). It was true at least up to Qt 3.2.3, but
Qt 3.3.0 introduced a couple of non-additive changes on the API, that
broke apps wanting to use "QTableItem::content() const". PyQt qtable
module is one of those :-)

The first time I uploaded PyQt 3.12 (3.12-1), there was Qt 3.2.3 at
unstable. A couple of weekends ago, Qt 3.3.0 entered unstable, and I had
to upload it again (3.12-2) so it could be built against the new Qt.
