I know I got a lot of these errors. They are quite annoying since they do not tell you what really happens. Unfortunately I do not remember what the issue is. I think you can get it if the qt libraries are not loaded.

There is an issue I never solved. It is that the PySide bindings don't load the qt libraries. A workaround is to put this before loading the pyside bindings:
from ctypes import *
qtcore = CDLL('libQtCore.so.4')
qtcascades = CDLL('libbbcascades.so')
qtdecl = CDLL('libQtDeclarative.so.4')

This loads the lib manually before they are needed.
