Thanks for the answer.

According to my package manager gtk-qt-engine isn't installed.

If I login using XFCE instead of TDE, then the problem goes away, so 
this is definitely related to something that's activated by using TDE.

I haven't checked many apps to which tool kits are and are not affected, 
but OpenOffice, Firefox and Mageia control centre are all exhibiting the 
problem. The Mageia control centre is a particular problem because the 
alternative styles are making the scroll bar on the software manger very 
"jumpy". In Firefox my the standard them gets a load of thick black 
lines which don't look very nice.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
