As the package maintainer, if you have a patch for the work-around that 
can be applied to the release version, and doesn't affect it working on 
stock slackware 14.2,  I don't mind adding it to the slackbuild, but as 
I don't have slackware current or qt5.9 I have no way or enthusiasm to 
test it myself. maybe you could mail it (a patch)  me (if it is small) 
off-list. Maybe, like Rob says, upstream will release a new stable with 
the fix. I can always ask them.
regards, Tim
