Well diagnosed!  The others were all system environment variables, while the 
PyQt4 PATH is mine, and therefore it was placed at the end.  I've taken the AMD 
and Matlab PATH entries out of the system list and put them after PyQt4 in my 
PATH.  Now peace and harmony are restored to my Python world.
