Ok, since the beginning of this thread I've been dabbling in MythTV, it certainly is quite the beast, to me, it's total overkill for such a tool, but then again, I'm a tool sometimes myself
I'm leaning (as was noted above) towards a QT issue of some sort. Maybe find the -devel QT lib's on your distros CD? I'm running Slackware 8.1 and lucky for me, it's all there without having to worry about -devel versions
That's really the only thing that would make sense (currently) to me.
