Can you post a link to the relevant thread in the mail archives?

Without knowing more about the way events are handled in the QtDBus and
python-dbus implementations, it's difficult to give you advice. There may
be a way to make them play well together, but perhaps this will involve
digging around in the low-level Python dbus API or even in the internal
_dbus_bindings module.

I imagine you've already looked into this. Did you make any progress?
