Package: pyqt4-dev-tools
Version: 4.10.4+dfsg-2
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Put tabbed text into a QLabel and elide it.
[self is QLabel, txt 'blah\tmooh\twoof']

fm = self.fontMetrics()
self.setText(fm.elidedText(txt, 1, self.width())

text displayed 'blah', even though 'blah    mooh    w'+u'\u2026' would have had enough space.

I suppose it's an upstream problem.
