At least for me and krdc each Qt update comes with a few, subtle problems. 
With 3.0->3.1 I had the problem that QWidget::showNormal() stopped sending 
QEvent::Show events, which caused problems because I wouldnt be notified of 
deminimization of my main window.
With Qt 3.1->3.2 my sizeHint() suddenly was to small by one pixel, so I had to 
add one (otherwise the ScrollView would show scroll bars). 

In other words, I would need to keep 2 Qt version around (to check whether my 
fix for the new version still works with the old one) and test everything 
twice. Definitely much more work than compiling a Qt version every 1-2 
months. Compared to updating kdelibs it's not much work...
