Did this worked in earlier versions? I don't use keyword arguments much, 
but according to the builtin help, QAction simply didn't define any 
(and neither provides the signature a shortcut argument):

>>> help(QtGui.QAction)

class QAction(PyQt4.QtCore.QObject)
 |  QAction(QObject)
 |  QAction(QString, QObject)
 |  QAction(QIcon, QString, QObject)

in contrary to:

>>> help(QtGui.QWidget)

class QWidget(PyQt4.QtCore.QObject, QPaintDevice)
 |  QWidget(QWidget parent=None, Qt.WindowFlags flags=0)
