I managed to find the message on the qt list and clear everything up.
For those who come after us...
The thread on the qt list is at URL:
The short summary is that I was building the layout wrong.
What I was doing: selecting the widgets to go in the Layout and then
hitting the layout button.
What I should have been doing: selecting the container widget (notebook,

getting things to look right is non-trivial, but that always is).
