That's a busy list!

No one answered my question directly, but it seems that I'm not
the only one who doesn't like the way Qt's Aqua style renders
various widgets.  See Jean-Christophe Godart's qt-interest posts
entitled "Widget size on Mac OS X," for example.  Trolltech says
that there are some known issues with Aqua and Qt 3.3.0, and that
they'll probably be fixed around 3.3.1 or 3.3.2.
