Here is a minimal test case, which works fine my computer at work: windows
xp, and the current release of PyQt with python 2.6.  This script is very
similar to the one I have at home, and I expect that it would fail, but I
haven't seen this script fail so Ill try it at home this afternoon.  If it
fails Ill try a newer snapshot.


from PyQt4 import QtGui,QtCore
import sys

class WhenDeleted(QtCore.QThread):
    def __init__(self,app,parent=None):
    def run(self):
        print "finished here"
    def stop(self):
    def echo(self):
        print "Recieved finished() signal"

if __name__=="__main__":
    app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv)
    x = WhenDeleted(app)
