I am not sure if you looked it wxPython at all. But it also has some  
GUI builders that generate code or uses mozilla-ish xml to dynamically  
build gui. I used wxWidgets for some commercial products so it really  
is not buggy if you know what your doing; however, it was the C++  
interface. Moving to the Python wx from there made life really easy.  
If I would have gone straight to wxPython I think I would have gotten  
extremely frustrated (as many do) because the API does not really read  
that easily.  QT is also really nice.

Concerning IDE's

+1 Komodo
+1 VIM

I also tried Netbeans Python Beta recently which did a really good job  
at some stuff; although, I unsure about how well the debugger works.   
I just did not have enough time to play around with it.
