Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent v4.1.7 Fedora 31

If on linux, libtorrent-rasterbar and Qt version

rb_libtorrent 1.1.13
qt 4.8.7

What is the problem

I'm using breeze cursor theme on gnome, but qbittorrent is using the adwaita cursor theme inside its window instead of the breeze cursors.

What is the expected behavior

qbittorrent should use the same cursor theme as the desktop

this is not qBittorrent only issue... this general Qt issue, and any Qt app will be affected.
even now Qt has very poor Wayland support, looks like this was abandoned since ~Qt 5.8...

even more, even default (Adwaita) cursors are used, cursor in any Qt app slightly different, at least bigger.

gtk2 platform plugin can't be used on Wayland at all, existing gtk3 plugin doesn't provide "theme integration", so app even doesn't try to find/detect looks and feel preferences. there is only some hardcoded values for it. some "wheel" called qt5ct can't solve this issue too, just because it works with list of presets, no feature like "use system style".

if I'll have enough free time theses days I'll look into Qt sources to find the platform-specific code related to cursors and share some results of investigations.
