I suspect that the problem may not be down to the version of
Qt/Embedded used, but rather something to do with the underlying
operating system – I managed to take a look at the .ui file in
QtCreator's wysiwyg UI editor, and it looked fine. Presumably, it
would have reproduced the problem described if it was Qt related.
The Qtopia core 4.3 library was built on a machine with a proper
window manager, KDE. The Qt/Embedded 4.4 library was built directly on
an embedded system that lacks any such desktop environment.
Do you think that the problem may be down to a lack of an "ideal"
font, that may have previously been distributed with my window
manager? Perhaps Qt/embedded tried to make do with what it had
available to it, but miscalculated, causing my spacing problem?
