I've had similar problems before.  Uninstalling and re-installing PyQt
has always resolved them.  It's a rather brutal workaround, but I
couldn't figured out what the root cause was.

Note that PyQt requires a folder inside your Python site-packages to
be in the PATH in order for it to work on Windows.
