VBox GUI - Main window crash after going to preferences or vm settings

After upgrading qt to 4.6.2-1, VBox main window crash after going to preferences or vm settings.

There is a workaround, using qtconfig and change GUI style to anything but GTK+ or Desktop Settings (Default).

Donwgrading qt also works with GTK+ or Default, but is not an option if you have an up-to-date kde desktop (v4.4).

As far I can see ArchLinux uses the run package from our side. The run package contains all necessary libraries which includes the Qt libraries as well. It is build and packaged this way to ensure all necessary bits are there and to make external dependencies as low as possible. Replacing the qt libraries with newer one is something we didn't support. Maybe the package maintainer should consider to use the bundled libraries. The same is done on Gentoo and there are no problems with that. I saw a discussion going on about the dependency on libpng12. This is another problem which we maybe fix in a future version.

Thanks poetzsch. The AUR packages are now using the qt libs provided by the run packages.

The .run packages of the next release will not have a dependency to anymore.
