Thanks, Phil, that eliminates one possible cause of the problem I'm
having.  My fixup() function is now getting called, and modifying its
(mutable) 'input' argument; however, something else seems to be
modifying the value after that.

I think the problem has to do with the fact that the spinbox is created
by a QItemDelegate instance set on a table view.  Everything works fine
when I exit the field by pressing Enter, but I can't get valid values to
'take' if I exit the field by pressing TAB; they always get set back to
their original value.  Anybody know how to work around this behavior?
