Just to update: I tried hiding and that didn't help.

I tried using a QFrame with QHBoxLayout (so I could use the setStretchFactor) 
and that didn't work.

I haven't yet tried:
- Q3HBox: there's no QHBox since you're now supposed to use something like a 
QWidget with a QHBoxLayout.
- A virgin SVN build with Post Date disabled to see if it's really just my 
patches messing up the tab order.  The New Account Wizard for a Loan has a 
date item that's disabled and enabled and doesn't seem to have a problem.
- Reapplying the tab order after I disable or enable the date.
