Description:
With [kde-unstable] packages, KDE plasmoids written in python (I have tried veromix and gmail-plasmoid) are failing to load. They show up as icons with red boxes with cross marks, and do not have normal functionality.

Additional info:
* package versions:
kdebindings-python 4.6.80-1 (kde-unstable)
kdebase-workspace 4.6.80-2 (kde-unstable)
python2-pyqt 4.8.4-1 (extra)
kdeplasma-addons-applets-veromix 0.11.2-1 (AUR)
gmail-plasmoid 0.7.16 (no Arch package, website at bottom)

* error output from plasmoidviewer:
% cd /usr/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/veromix-plasmoid; plasmoidviewer
plasmoidviewer(11390)/libplasma Plasma::FrameSvg::resizeFrame: Invalid size QSizeF(0, 0)
plasmoidviewer(11390)/libplasma Plasma::FrameSvg::resizeFrame: Invalid size QSizeF(0, 0)
plasmoidviewer(11390)/python (plugin): Failed to import module
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/apps/plasma_scriptengine_python/pyappletscript.py", line 20, in <module>
from PyQt4.QtCore import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyQt4/QtCore.so: undefined symbol: PyBool_Type

Steps to reproduce:
With kde-unstable packages, install kdeplasma-addons-applets-veromix from AUR and/or gmail-plasmoid from http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/gmail-plasmoid?content=101229 , and add either plasmoid to a panel or system tray.

system-config-printer-kde throws the same error. Everything works fine in 4.6.3 with the same pyqt.

Same here with any python plasmoid

Yep, still I don't get the problem here

downgrading to kdebindings-python-4.6.4-1 fix issue.

On the console I get the following output:

plasma-desktop(8403)/python (plugin): Failed to import module
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/apps/plasma_scriptengine_python/pyappletscript.py", line 20, in <module>
from PyQt4.QtCore import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyQt4/QtCore.so: undefined symbol: PyBool_Type

Downgrading to 4.6.4 even under 4.7 works.
