Micheal, thanks for the information and the good news. I'm using Arch
Linux. I'll get these new versions fairly quickly.

The version I"m using now is: qt5-base     5.10.1-6
This version is in the "unstable" repository now: qt5-base     5.11.0beta2-2

Therefore, I anticipate that I'll get 5.11 shortly after it comes out of

I really appreciate you taking the time to look into this. Otherwise I
would have been continuing to waste a lot of time and energy going off in
the wrong direction.
