I'd look at tqt3, arts, tdelibs, and *maybe* tdebase, but honestly I think
the problem is in tdelibs
(  Easiest way to debug
this is:
1.) Check out and rebuild/reinstall tqt3, arts, tdelibs, and tdebase from
the last known working date.
2.) Update, rebuild, and reinstall each module in turn, checking for the
failure after each module has been reinstalled with the latest sources. 
3.) Once the module is known (e.g. tdelibs or tdebase causes the problem),
bisect the commits between the known working date and the latest HEAD.

Tedious, but you should get the faulty commit fastest this way.
