It is. Bug fixes are bug fixes. KDE software requires features in Qt, not fixes.

How about requiring Qt 4.6.3 then, because it will fix a bug that we haven't

If there's something so grave that it crashes everything when you log out, you 
should make the point of having it in the next available release, not the one 
after that.
