I've never seen a traceback like what you presented... Could you try
with the ubuntu native pyqt package?  That's what I've used and I've
never seen a problem.

If there's some weird interaction between the system Qt and a
hand-built PyQt, I'm afraid that's way beyond my Qt expertise; I
suggest asking on the PyQt list directly where I think your chances
are better.
