Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: update-notifier-kde

Due to recent changes in pysupport module, update-notifier-kde.py is
installed in /usr/share/pyshared along with other directories which
cause import issues. Notably: PyQt4/uic, dbus...

Because the sys.path includes the current dir now as first in the list,
when the app tries to import PyQt4.QtCore.*, it fails, as the current
dir only contains the 3rd party PyQt4.uic module. Similar happens for
the dbus imports.

The app needs to be installed outside the pyshared directory.
