That's really weird.  Is PyProtocols built with speedups also, or no?  Does 
it make any difference to the behavior?

Please do; I don't have Qt or PyQt available to me the moment, but I'm most 
curious about what could cause this.  I can't think of any way in which 
problems in the C code could manifest in such an odd way.
