Smplayer failing to start

Hello everyone,

on my system smplayer doesn't start from TDE. In ~/.xsession-errors is this 
error log:

TQPaintDevice: Must construct a TQApplication before a TQPaintDevice
[WARNING] Qt4 >= Qt 4.8.0 detected; you are likely affected by these Qt4 bugs:

when I start smplayer in konsole I get this error message:

TQPaintDevice: Must construct a TQApplication before a TQPaintDevice

These two differ only in having a different order of some of the lines (and the 
language, because my konsole is configured to have locale LANG=C).

The warnings don't seem to be a problem as I've seen them a lot of times before 
without noticing any glitches.

The system is Debian wheezy with TDE 14.04.

Smplayer comes from an external repository from the MEPIS Community:

$  apt-cache policy smplayer
smplayer:
  Installed: 17.7.0-0mcr12+1
  Candidate: 17.7.0-0mcr12+1
  Version table:
 *** 17.7.0-0mcr12+1 0

        500 http://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/debian/debian/ wheezy/main amd64 
Packages

Mepis 12 is supposed to be compatible with wheezy, though.

The TQPaintDevice error is not thrown, when smplayer/14.9.0~ds0-1 is installed, 
which is from jessie.

Any ideas, what the TQPaintDevice error means and what I could do to fix that?

Regards, Stefan
