  Have you tried the unit tests?  Run `trial --reactor qt -R twisted'.  I doubt anyone's done this in a long time, so I'm not sure what will happen, but the last time I saw it run, the results weren't pretty.  The tests which fail should give you some idea of what functionality doesn't work with Qt (or perhaps just which tests incorrectly depend on unspecified behavior from the default reactor which the Qt reactor does not provide).
