Qt "cannot call constructor for""a function-style cast remove the redundant ::QBrush"
 
This is an easy enough error to fix but I was wondering if someone could explain to me why its happening at all? I heard it was something in GCC, but I thought that sort of thing was legal syntax? Its in some code I didn't write so I'm not sure why its there in the first place, but I'm still curious.

what version of gcc are YOU using and what version of gcc was the qt code wrote for ?

there have been many changes from gcc 4.1 to gcc 4.5

ad the problem with things like QBrush::QBrush; change to QBrush ;

Yeah I know that, I'm asking about the rational behind the changes.

to force coders to write SECURE code and less unneeded code built into a program .
to have less common everyday bugs in new code
to improve the code base

Actually, I'm asking about the specific change I posted...
