Hi Pino,

I think the real issue here is:

despite the fact that you have a local kde build, the pluggins that gets 
loaded by Qt when running a KDE or Qt application are not the ones you 
compiled. An old one is used instead, that is inconsistent with the 
libraries it links to.
The new, compiled one, should get loaded.
No change of so name will fix that.
Correct ?
