I've never used Qt (though it's high on my list of things to look at
when I win the lottery and give up my day job 8-) but it's a general
Python rule that settrace() only works on the current thread.  So you'll
need to somehow call blackbox.recordTo() from the thread you need to
examine - ideally at the beginning of that thread's Python code.  Or
call it in the module that's doing the "import types", before the
import.
