This looks very much like what I used to get with gtk-qt-engine,
cf. http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.pretest.bugs/18115.  Are
you using this, since you're also using KDE?

I cannot account for the difference you describe (the pictures don't
show it, however; I assume the latter screen shot is mistaken).  I
guess you built from the unicode2 branch, since the
--enable-font-backend and --with-xft options are not in the trunk.
Maybe the interaction with gtk-qt-engine there (if that's the problem)
is different from the trunk.
