Dear Qt 3/Win Free developers,

first of all thank you very much for fixing the font metrics bug that
increased the usability of "LyX/Qt3/Win Free" significantly!

However, I have identified another problem with your Qt port that is
related to drawing dotted lines. 

For drawing table cell boundaries, LyX sets the style of a QPen in the
following way:

  QPen pen = ...;

As a result, a thin blue dotted line should be drawn when using this
pen. But instead, a black (sometimes red) solid line is draw (the color
may depend on former drawing operations).

If you can spare some time, you might have a look at the corresponding
Qt code. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to create a test case yet
due to time constraints. I can try to create one this evening if that

Kind regards,
