I would say it works around a bug. I don't believe TT would
intentionally release QIconSet in it's present condition. The fact that
it does not allow a user to supply his/her own Disable icon surely is an
oversight. Furthermore the Disabled icon generated by QIconSet looks
truly awful. It looks just like somebody had spilt black ink on the screen
Ok, so there are really two issues here 1 (known issue) and 2 (never
heard of that issue before).
Have you reported these issues to qt-bugs or the help desk? If not they
can't be fixed.
