[PyQt] QMessageBox.question returns NoButton in python interactive

Seems to work ok in 5.9.2 and 5.12.1 in Linux here.  I get 16384 (Yes)
and 65536 (No). 

Though this is an odd program.  I thought message boxes maybe ran their
own event loop if needed but is showing a button and expecting it's
signals to emit functionally really proper?

This behavior is present in both PyQt4 and PyQt5 (most recently tested on 5.9.2 from anaconda package), on windows (but not linux), and only if I have not called QApplication.exec_() because I am running in an interactive python shell.
