No kidding. There were a bunch of very obvious bugs recetly like
not being able to load plugins (mysql3 et al). Those would be
very obvious to anyone that does anything with Qt and a database.

BTW: OpenGL module would require thread support in Qt so I don't
think it would be in libqt3. It should be in libqt3-mt.

Anyway, a maintainer for libqt3 and other comlicated libraries,
should have a bunch of test programs that he/she would check
to make sure everything was compiled and installed properly.

PS. When will Qt get recompiled with gcc3.2?
