Paul, thanks a lot for taking the time to shed light on this with a
perfectly clear explanation.

Being still a beginner in Qt, I do hate such apparent mysteries :-)
I guess there was a valid rationale at the time for changing this in Qt4 ?

Anyway, I'll switch QAction slots to "triggered" in all my code, even
for desktops, just to be on the safe side...
