Weird, I'm getting single click behaviour here. I thought that we were looking 
up the KDE 4 settings.

Still, the right way to do this is to provide a platform plugin to tailor the 
settings to the specific desktop (the "platform plugni" we invented for Qt 4.5, 
before QPA took over the name). KDE 4 provides one for Qt 4. There isn't one 
yet for Qt 5.

Qt will guess a setting based on your desktop, but you can provide a platform 
plugin theme too. I don't know what the search order is.
