Hi Svenn,

we already had this issue. I remember having it myself, and at some point it disappeared. We have never been able to nail it down, though. I don't know whether it's a Qt bug or a kst bug. I think if you close kst and try it again at some point it starts working. I think it has something to do with wrong default settings, but I may be wrong...

Keep us informed of your findings. And I'll try to test it with a fresh user...
