[PyQt] PyQt and/or Qt problems on Windows Vista

Installing an older version of Python 2.6 does not help.

Instead, installing the latest PyQt snapshot of the Riverbank website
the problem of "python crash on application exit" disappears.  : )

I hope Riverbank will provide a new "all-in" installer (4.7.4?) as
soon as possible.

Thanks for the help.

Ciao ciao.
