For the dummies: am I using QtRoot if I've run configure with "--with- qt-incdir=/usr/lib/qt-3.3/include --with-qt-libdir=/usr/lib/qt-3.3/ lib"? "root-config --has-qt" returns "yes". I'm asking because NX crashes reliably when starting our readout error monitoring software. The problem is that that's a complicated piece of code from which I cannot easily extract a portable snippet exhibiting the error :-(

Anything else I could try?
