I reported this issue when 5.6.1 was released, unfortunately for me
it's even worse as it also has conflicts with the
$QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS, making this package unusable in my dual
monitor setup.

Not knowing any real detail of how AppImages are packages, I've been
hoping the next iteration would work as before.  I also noted that
there's some hints of a 5.6.2 version, but it seems to only exist in
source code form, no packages yet.
