Would it make sense to shift development of Qtshark to Qt5? I don't see
much merrit in supporting both Qt4 and Qt5 and at least on my openSUSE
system, I need to reinstall the development packages because they can't
coexist, making build stuff for Qt5 extremly inconvenient. Oh, and regarding
long time maintainance I'd rather have Qt5 support than Qt4 support.

It might. Qt5 wasn't usable until recently, so most of the development
so far has been with Qt4. Are the APIs really that different, however?
So far supporting both hasn't been nearly as much trouble as supporting
GTK2 and GTK3.

Regarding the other point mentioned in my mail: Can you please add back
the option for the scrollbar on the left side? I looked at it already but
as the patch does several things simultanously I'm likely to undo more
than what is really required?

Can you try adding the following to your GTK settings (which might be
named ~/.gtkrc-2.0 or ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini)?

gtk-scrolled-window-placement = top-right
