How is this related to Qt? I am afraid, you are totally wrong here
with your question. Just because some program uses an environment 
variable with 'QT' in it, does not make it a Qt related problem.
Perhaps you should ask in one of the StackOverflow forums?  
Or maybe... just maybe you might have a bit more luck in a KDE
