Not to devalue Trolltech's excellent work on Qt, but it seems like this should have been fixed in Xorg rather than worked-around in Qt


butters: I fully agree with you. Being a toolkit author myself, I agree. This is something that needs to be fixed in X11 (Xorg) and not in every toolkit out there via work-arounds.

Fair enough. I agree with the reasoning in the linked comment thread. Trolltech was right to go ahead and enhance Qt, especially since they are cross-platform. But it's also important that this generate enough noise to persuade the Xorg folks to make improvements on their end.
