That is odd, I have never seen such a difference.

What about other Qt 5 based applications? A more modern Kate e.g.?

Well sure, KDE 4 uses Qt 4, KF5 and KDevelop 5 uses Qt 5. There have been some 
changes in font rendering, but I don't remember anyone ever complaining about 
line spacing... Note that we do not configure line heights at all - we simply 
ask the font for its height and use that.
