Problem solved, Qt 4.4 rc 1 seems to fix this.

I can work around the Oxygen menus text not appearing issue with this
patch to kdebase/runtime/kstyles/oxygen
http://kubuntu.org/~jriddell/oxygen-python-menus-text.diff which just
stops oxygen doing whatever it does to menus text.

KStandardAction doesn't seem to have the necessary c++ slot to python
slot changes needed, this app doesn't work
