I just ran some quick tests and it doesn't look like any messages are 
sent but I sent an inquiry to the QT API list in case there is some way 
to register a listener or something along those lines.  I'm not sure if 
this would be useful or not as I've always just wired movies for 
communication with the host app but now I'm intrigued by the 
possibility :-)
