[PyQt] Python property in QObject masks AttributeErrors

Hi everyone,
twice now I've stumbled over a subtle bug when subclassing QObject. When
the getter of a python property raises an AttributeError for any
attribute or object, PyQt seems to reraise this error improperly,
clearing the traceback and often reporting a false object type and
attribute name. See the attached script for a minimal example.
