Right. I don't have any idea of where to begin looking for problems since
I'm not all that familiar with how sip and PyQt work. I noticed that if you
open up a python shell, import qt, create the QApplication(sys.argv ), and
then a QButton(), it's fine. However, if you do the same thing except create
a QTable() instead of a QButton, I get the  error message and the python
shell exits, almost like it segfaults.

I've also tested with sip-snapshot-20060418 and PyQt-snapshot-20060407, and
I get the same result.
