Well, it does. For me.
If you were about to upgrade, spare yourselves some headaches. It does
not work "just fine." On first sight, it does seem to work, but if you
look a bit better, it does not. Symptoms of using KDE 4.3 with Qt 4.6:
* Logging out of KDE takes half a minute.
Maybe, didn't measure the time.
You don't need to measure anything to tell the difference between 3
seconds and 30 seconds :P
* Amarok takes ages to load.
* The text on (Oxygen) push buttons is not centered.
It is here.
Look closer. But you would need Qt 4.5 to compare...
* Fonts and shapes appear somewhat messed up (e.g., the tray clock).
Not here. Tray clock sometimes messed up with TQ 4.5, too.
*Never* happens here with 4.5. With 4.6, it's *always* wrong. Again,
you need 4.5 to compare.
* Global shortcuts (like CTRL+ESC to start "System Activity") stop
working after a few hours of uptime.
Works fine here, even after days of uptime.
Usually happens when starting programs that register new shortcuts.
Like Amarok or Mumble.
There might be more, but I didn't stay around long enough to find out.
I reverted to Qt 4.5. Note that I *did* a full rebuild of all packages
that depend on Qt, including all of KDE of course ("equery depends" is
Bottom line, KDE 4.3 *does* work with Qt 4.6, but it does *not* work
"just fine" (there's a big difference between "works" and "works fine").
And there's also a big difference between "works fine for me" and "works fine for
you", it seems
Probably. But you confirmed some of the problems.
One last thing I forgot to mention in my OP: The X process was using
800MB of RAM after 5 hours of uptime. "Desktop Effects" are enabled, by
