I disagree that this makes sense.

$ ./kconfigguitest
********* Start testing of KConfigTest *********
Config: Using QTest library 4.7.0, Qt 4.7.0
PASS   : KConfigTest::initTestCase()
PASS   : KConfigTest::testComplex()
QWARN  : KConfigTest::testInvalid() QColor::setNamedColor: Unknown color name 

Yes, this will crash with QT_FATAL_WARNINGS. So? It's good to have a unit test 
test border conditions too, even if these conditions lead to warnings from Qt.

I think this setting makes sense for applications, but not for unit tests.

On the other hand I'm more interested in what failures you see -without-
