Hello,

I am pretty new to Qt4 and SIP but I try to find a problem
with the startup of the Py-Qt4 application (Hewlett Packard
printer toolbox utility from hp-lip package) on my FreeBSD box.

My environment:

* FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #5 r206987: Tue Apr 27 20:45:03 CEST 2010
* Qt 4.6.3
* PyQt4 4.7.3 (configure options at the end of this email)
* SIP 4.10.2 (configure options at the end of this email)
* Python 2.5.5

Everything running on amd64 (64 bit), installed via FreeBSD
ports from source.

Simple "from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication" fails with SIGSEGV:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I have poked around a bit and I have trouble understanding one thing
in siplib.c:

createContainerType() uses a "currentType" global variable to pass
the QApplication class description to the object being created by
Python. An "sip.enumtyp" Python object is being created and then
sipEnumType_alloc() attempts to use currentType to fill in the slots
of the object.  However, it assumes that the currentType passed is
a pointer to (sipEnumTypeDef), while in this case it is (sipClassTypeDef).
Segmentation violation occurs when attepting to use illegal value of
"etd_pyslots" as a pointer.

How is "currentType" supposed to work in case of metaclass initialization?

Below please find a full dump from the gdb session, commands
supplied to gdb on stdin are given at the beginning of
the script.  (gdb /usr/local/bin/python < commands)
