I assume by "dual head" you mean "Xinerama"? Since you say it's working
in Gnome and KDE3, I assume your X is properly set up and Xinerama is
working correctly. In which case, my guess is that your Qt4 was compiled
without Xinerama support (I had the same problem, I think for some crazy
reason you have to ask to enable it). I had a useful program to ask Qt4
what it thinks the screen(s) are, but I can't find it right now (not
even sure I kept it).
If you're building qt-copy, make sure you passed '-xinerama' to 'configure'.

I have three screens here, and KDE4 has no problems playing nice with
that setup. I'm guessing your Qt4 is the problem.
