Looks like upstream bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=168278
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?
