You need to "clear" all references to the object, so you have to tell
the iconview to forget about the item (i.e. by using takeItem) and you
should not save a reference to it in a global or class/instance
variable. This way at the end of the function which performs the
"deletion" the python object gets garbage collected and thus the C++
object gets destroyed.


Better hope the life-inspector doesn't come around while you have your
life in such a mess.
