We don't do anything special in those widgets as far as I can see. E.g. we 
don't specifically enabled animations in those widgets. So this likely is 
either a KDE/Qt issue.

I have to say: I have no idea whether those animations can be controlled 
globally on a KDE/Qt level at all.

Might want to ask on a different mailing list (KDE or Qt one) for this.
