Thx for the info. I'll check this out tomorrow and report back if my 
issues are all gone :)

In Qt4 I'm using QX11EmbedWidget/EmbedContainer. In Qt5 I use 
QWidget::createWindowContainer() + QWindow::fromWinId(). The simple 
testcase (a QWidget on client and server side) works as expected but I 
my application it does not work. I could not yet figure out which side 
is the problem - on the server site I want to use it as centralWidget() 
of a QMainWindow, on the client side it's a QWidget with custom 
paintings outside the paintevent. I hope to get to this tomorrow evening.
