The QApplication object is already passed to the Plugin you don't have to bother
with this.

I've tried it various times to get pyqt and Scribus working together. The attached
script works, but only one time. If you want it to run a second time Scribus hangs
and has to be killed. It seems that pyqt does some things during it's initial start
that could be run only once.
