After I looked at what you added, no.  Those bugs are mostly to do
with multiple monitors, but I guess you have so many CPUs that you
are working the QT or kde code harder.

More generally, a lot of the applications have still not completed
their move to frameworks, so I suppose it is probably a bit too
bleeding-edge for a release.
