I sent some days ago a very small patch ( netto 2 lines + 2 lines debug msg ) 
for a very important Qt-Bug.

Please apply this as soon as possible, as there might be other users with also 
a lot of diagrams, where the Qt-Bug causes a X11 memory usage factor of more 
than 10 "TEN TIMES"!!!!
-> They get very frustrated, if they don't know how to avoid this problem.

This means:
My project without patch: > 600MB X11 Pixmap Resources

My project with patch: ~20MB X11 Pixmap Resources

-> Factor 30

This Qt-Bug causes probably also with less diagrams some remarkable memory 
overhead, which was just not detected yet with smaller projects.


P.S.: Patch added in case my last email got lost
