Thanks for the qdirstat link, SLES12SP2 does not really contain many qt
programs ...

But first one more thing. Are you sure qt is to blame? I used yast2

rzinstal1:~ # bash -x yast2
+ '[' -f /.instsys.config ']'
+ '[' gtk = qt -a '!' -x /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter ']'
+ '[' gtk = gtk -a '!' -x /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter-gnome ']'
+ y2ccbin=
+ case "$WANTED_SHELL" in
+ y2ccbin=/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter-gnome
+ '[' menu == menu -a -x /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter-gnome ']'
+ /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2controlcenter-gnome

So its using the gnome version by default.

yast2 --qt leads to a call of /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base menu qt

yast2 (gnome) is the one that works after a gnome-terminal call. yast2 --qt
does then still not work, it hangs when started, no message and no window.

qdirstat prints a one line message "Logging to /tmp/qdirstat-0.log" and then
hangs just like yast2 --qt.

The SLES12SP2 servers I manage are all VMs running on a Citrix XenServer 6.2.
They are no fresh installs, thats what just came to my mind. They were upgraded
from SLES11SP4 to SLES12, SLES12SP1 and then to SLES12SP2. I am right now
installing a fresh physical SLES12SP2 to see, if this makes any difference.
