[Stackless] Still getting crashes with PySide

No, PySide is considerably more crashy with Stackless involved.  The
only crashes I get without it, as I use it now without Stackless as
Christian does, are reconcilable ones.  PySide signals have a declared
type that are sent through them, send a different type and crash.
That sort of thing.
