A new version 3.7.11-7 that resolves this issue has been published in debian sid.

The Debian bug report referenced above includes the patch to fix it, but I guess the most stable option would be to update the Kali Linux repo to gnuradio version 3.7.11-7 (from the Debian repo):;bug=886807;filename=qt5-qtgui-bug886807.patch;msg=10

Yes we will just wait until the fixed gnuradio migrates to Debian testing and Kali Rolling. Should happen in 2-3 days.

This issue can be closed, as the new gnuradio version 3.7.11-8 available from the Kali Rolling repos resolves the problem with QT GUI components.
