I looked through the changelog for the qt-x11-free source.  Version 3.3.5 does 
have a patch that disables the "includehints" in Qt.  Based on the changelog, 
a lot of things have changed between the version in stable (3.3.4-3) and the 
one in unstable (3.3.5-1).

I am currently trying to build the Qt packages from stable on my sid machine 
with gcc 4.0.2.  I'm not sure it will even compile properly, but will be 
interesting to see if the older version of Qt will prevent these X errors.

Looks like some kind of patch has been applied, but not sure if this makes Qt 
3.3.5 "ok" for use with KDE 3.4/3.5.
