That looks like a ubiquity problem, specific as it relates to partitioning.

Looking at the code, there's a self.emit() [SIGNAL][1]. Looking at the way
[emit][2] is supposed to work, there should be a self.connect() to the
SIGNAL (in this case, dataChanged()). Interestingly there's no mention of
"dataChanged" anywhere in the entirety of the code base. The current code
there is from [2012][3] and even then it was just changed to meet with
pep8. So I'm not sure if either I don't understand PyQt (quite possible) or
if something went missing. I don't see anything obvious in the commit
messages, even the [porting to PyQt5][4].

Dutch, it would be interesting to see if this is reproducible. Please give
me the exact steps. Thanks!
