Or nevermind.  Easy enough to prove.  Simple form with one widget, and the 
choice bit of code was:

    if ( !name )
        setName( "Form1" );

    kDateWidget1 = new KDateWidget( this, "kDateWidget1" );
    kDateWidget1->setGeometry( QRect( 100, 140, 243, 31 ) );
    resize( QSize(600, 482).expandedTo(minimumSizeHint()) );
    clearWState( WState_Polished );

It's hard to argue that this isn't a bug.  That code is garbage.  KDateTable 
only has one ctor (in KDE 3.2.3 anyway)

KDateTable (QWidget *parent=0, QDate date=QDate::currentDate(), const char 
*name=0, WFlags f=0)

So the code uic spat out is all kinds of busted.

Not much you can do about it either.  Nothing practical anyway.  That's the 
price you pay for convenience, I guess.

I'm not so sure, really.  I just can't grok the whole Designer way of doing 
things.  I've tried, and it seems like a lot more trouble than it's worth.  
If it doesn't write good code, what can you do about it?  If you fix the 
code, you've burned your bridges, and you can't use Designer anymore.

I'm doing my current project from scratch.  I started with an empty framework 
generated by KDevelop 3, and have been hand editing everything since.  It's 
working out fairly well so far.  I think I'll be really glad I learned how to 
do layouts by hand.

So glad that I'm writing this message and putting it off a little longer.  ;)
