Right, and as I said on the muse-devel list, this is a nasty, but known, 
bugger that we currently don't have a fix for.
It seemingly only affects muse if you built it with QT3.2. And moreover not 
all installations with QT3.2 are affected.
If you are using qt3.1.2 you should not be affected. (If there is someone who 
is I'd very much like to know about it.)

Finally, it appears not to affect muse from cvs (0.7) but that version is not 
release ready.
