I think the important point is not that this was changed behind the 
developer's back, but that some app developers relied on undocumented 
behavior. (After all, it was not documented that QLabel's text will update 
without any animation.)

By the way, could a possible solution be that the animation is not played when 
the text is changed while the QLabel is not visible?
