I've been running KDE with Qt 4.8 for over 6 months. The only issue I see is a 
font one: a variable-width font is selected in some applications when a fixed-
width one was intended. It used to happen with kate/kwrite as well as Qt 
Creator but it has disappeared from there -- now it only appears in WebKit 
(rekonq & konqueror).
