> Qt4 embedded breakage has nothing to do with X11 afterall.

If you don't use --no-embedded-video, Qt4 will likely crash at exit. This 
happens if the video output is destroyed _after_ the end of the Qt4 interface 
main loop. Personnaly, I don't know how to force the Qt4 interface main loop 
to keep running until the video is released, and stop then (if requested).

Upgrading to Qt 4.3 won't solve the problem. And using Windows probably won't 
fix it either. This also affects all 0.9.* releases, but 0.9.4 and 0.9-bugfix 
have the embedded video disabled on QT4-X11.
