Are you building under qt3 instead of tqt3?  If so I think I know what the
problem is, but don't yet have a way to fix it.

Many TDE .desktop files contain a type string, e.g. TQString, that allows
the plugin loader to know how to interpret library paths, etc. via the
TQVariant class.  These were recently renamed to fix loading under tqt3,
but I am fairly certain this broke loading under qt3.

The easiest fix is to modify qt3, but I am very hesitant to do that...
