I have no direct solution; when I was still using gtk-qt-engine, I was 
encountering weird problems all the time (fonts in menus being white 
instead of black which made them hard to read is one I remember the 
most). Then I discovered qtcurve. It's a highly configurable and a very 
nice (in my opinion) style for QT/KDE _and_ GTK as well. When you 
install packages qtcurve-kde4, qtcurve-kde3 and qtcurve-gtk2 from 
[community], you gain a nice, clean and unified look for all KDE, QT and 
GTK applications without any additional help (I don't even have that 
"Use my KDE style in GTK applications" option checked in KDE settings). 
So give it a shot, maybe you'll like it.
