I'm using Gnome, but it's interesting you say that, because I did try 
installing some KDE applications, like Knode and Kaddress, and come to 
think of it, they too wouldn't pick up the system window colour (they did 
in Ubuntu Hardy). But I didn't play with them for very long, and the 
extra Kgubbins they brought in with them seemed to cause one or two 
issues with the default Studio/Gnome environment, so I removed it all.

But I guess that points to it being a QT issue.

However, other QT apps that I have here, like Virtualbox, Rosegarden and 
VLC, have blended in with my Gnome desktop seamlessly.
