I don't know whether this is relevant or not but just in case:

The QAM constellations produced by blks2impl/qam.py aren't set up for
differential modulation which was causing me some problems with the
benchmark_qt_loopback2.py program.  In my github repo
(github.com/benreynwar/gnuradio) i've got a modified qam.py which
fixes this.
