Super off-topic, but neither GIMP nor QuodLibet use Qt. Both are GTK+ apps (in fact, GTK+ spawned from GIMP). This is something pretty much every gui toolkit does -- if you don't specify a minimum size for a window, but you do specify minimum sizes from the controls in the window, the window inherits the additive minimum size of those controls + layout (margins and spacing and such). Blaming Qt/Trolltech/Nokia/Digia for doing what every toolkit does is silly.
