There's either some weird statement in your local or global shell profile  
or Qt (4.8/git, vanilla/distro?) is broken on interpreting that env. ------------------
chmod +x

QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/opt/kde4/lib64/kde4/plugins ./print_env | grep  
QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/opt/kde4/lib64/kde4/plugins: ./print_env | grep  

If the correct value ends up there, i'd bet for a Qt bug (the other dir  
could be just a failsafe thing, ie if the configured plugin dir doesn't  
exist, Qt might lookup likely places in it's own path.

Good news is that you can continue using bash - iff you still want to,  
that is ;-)
