You know how I had this issue where I'd start `kdevelop --ps` and then had to cycle the session-selection dialog to give it an update event and get it to fill in?

That issue is gone.

The only thing I changed that I can think of is that I've been trying different default fonts. Fonts (rather, font attributes, typefaces) are a tricky thing under qt4-mac. I've come to the tentative conclusion that Qt stores font selections in some kind of cross-platform encoded format that seems based on the way X11 represents them, and which doesn't allow unambiguous reverse mapping. So a perfect UI font like Segoe UI 11 Semi-Bold "promotes" to the Bold version.
I finally settled down on using 11pt Novarese Bold for the default font, giving up on bold text in dialogs and message panels and such.

NB: the same issue also exists in Qt5, and can easily be demonstrated with the Assistant from the official installer ...
