That's really cool :)  Unfortunately, the call into QThread's run method 
(which is where everything is dying) is a C module call and the python that 
gets executed by that library call does not get traced.  Thus, I can't see 
anything about the environment in which the import fails 'cause it's all 
wrapped up by the QThread.

Does that mean I need to trace it in gdb? Icky...  ;o)

btw, the -vv didn't help for the same reason that the blackbox code didn't 
work.  And thanks for posting that.. My news server never did get Tim's
