[KDE/Mac] layout issues with the "Macintosh (Aqua)" theme?

Have there been reports about layout issues with the native OS X
"Aqua" style, whether they use style (.ui) sheets or not?

We have been seeing layout errors in KDE applications when they use
the Aqua style, but not when they use any of the other installed style
(KDE or Qt).
We were hoping that this issue would disappear with Qt5 in KF5
applications (along with a few other glitches), but it is unchanged as
the attachments to the BKO report show (see forwarded message below).

What is different between the Aqua and all the other styles that
causes the layout to be so wrong that numerous application interfaces
become almost unusable? I am of course not referring to internal
differences but to differences in, say, the information returned about
button dimensions (which seem to be to small).
Note that the application in that bug report, kcalc, uses style sheets.

BTW, is that theme still called Aqua with the latest Qt versions? I
think Apple hasn't been using that name to refer to its UI style for
more than just a few OS versions now...
