[PySide] sender().data() does not work for custom objects

Hi all,

I'm trying to make a QAction pass a custom object as it's data, so I can 
grab it via QWidget.sender().data()
This works just fine for a default object like a dictionary, but not for 
a custom object that I need to use.

This works fine in PySide 1.0.9 but PySide 1.2.1 always returns None 
when querying sender().data() from a QAction that has a custom object 
assigned to it's data.

Here is some sample code that shows the problem:

Is this a bug in PySide 1.2.1 or did I do something wrong before which 
accidentally worked in PySide 1.09 when it shouldn't have?
