[PyQt] Click on QTextEdit in a QDockWidget

Thanks for the help coming.

When I click on the QTextEdit Widget with the left button nothing happens
while it accepts the right button and I can process it from MousePressEvent. 
Please tell me where do I go wrong...  Any comments to this learner will be
accepted!  It seems it is only when I put the QTextEdit in a layout?

Thanks,  chaski
