The KIO.NetAccess.stat methods in PyKDE aren't coded correctly. The list (your 
udsEntry variable) should be a return value, not an argument. It should be:

   result, udsEntry = KIO.NetAccess.stat (myURL)

where result is bool and udsEntry is a Python list. But the error is in PyKDE, 
and if you re-code that way it still won't work until I fix PyKDE.

I'm still trying to get a snapshot together with some other fixes, but it will 
be a while - not in the next few days at any rate.
