This is with Fedora 10 where Qt is coming from package: qt-4.4.3-6.fc10.i386

Something strange is still happening with EIT. Some events do not get 
inserted into DB at all. Reason might NOT be the ' -character issue 
which I mention in ticket #6078. Another issue is that for some 
programs, title and description do not match! So e.g. later program has 
the description of the earlier program.

Hopefully the CAT / CATTYPE fix will fix at least some of the remaining 

By the way, it is annoying that the boolean returning from the 
QSqlQuery.exec() is not false when SQL query fails due to incorrect 
syntax or so. Or at least I think this is the case. If the return value 
would be "right" it could be used to promote the failed SQL-query log 
prints to important log level so that any errors would be discovered 
earlier and easier..

These EIT issues are new now with Qt4/trunk. These were working fine 
with -fixes.
