This also sounds similar: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171865

The problem apparently lies in Qt

Hrm, wonder when the "fixed qt upstream" version is forthcoming, no mention in the upstream report.  4.5?  

Either way, we'll do likewise, closed->upstream.

Have you checked the qt-copy patches?
