Qt colormap problem

When i run Qt gui apps on a recent X debian/unstable system, when the mouse
cursor passes over a Qt window, the whole screen goes black with traces of
some menu text still visible, and various widget colours of the Qt app go
black too. I don't know if all Qt apps do this. The one that currently does
is Skype for Etch:



I'm using the icewm window manager.

The colours don't change if the mouse passes over only the titlebar or borders
of the window.
