[PyQt] "sip: QFileIconProvider is undefined" from import of QtGui/QtGuimod.sip with SIP 4.10, Qt 4.6.1 and Python 2.5.1

Excerpt from our pyqtconfig.py script is below.  The Qt string generated for pyqt_sip_flags from a Qt 4.6.1/PyQt 4.6.1 installation is 'Qt_4_5_0' - which is puzzling to all of us who were expecting to see something like 'Qt_4_6_x'.  Is the appearance of '-t Qt_4_5_0' for 'pyqt_sip_flags' in the Qt 4.6.1/PyQt 4.6.1 installation expected behavior?

Works fine for me. It suggests a problem with your PyQt installation. You
can check 'pyqt_sip_flags' in pyqtconfig.py to see what flags you should be
