Hrm... that's very odd.

Using the same version here, and the usermanager project contains no less than 
4 .ui dialogs...

You need two classes for each dialog. The .ui class, and the subclass which 
implements the code rather than the .ui.h

Which method have you been using to create new classes?

It's *really* important to shirk out dependency on Qt designer, since we're 
not going to be able to use it when we switch to Qt4, they relegated the tool 
to a plugin designed to be used by other IDEs (such as KDevelop).
