QT4 Trolltech.conf settings lost after reboot

Bug Description

Since the update to Kubuntu 17.04 / plasma 5.9.4 all qt4 based applications (e.g. KeePassX) render using wrong font instead of my personal configured font. When I run qtconfig-qt4 (4.8.7), change font and click 'save', a fresh .config/Trolltech.conf is saved, contains the correct font config and all qt4 applications now show correct font. These settings however do not survive a reboot although Trolltech.conf exists and contains correct settings.

After saving the qtconfig settings and reboot, there are two lines "fonts=" appears in ~/.config/Trolltech.conf

#after reboot
$ cat ~/.config/Trolltech.conf | grep font=
font="Sans Serif,9,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0"

#after manual qtconfig saving
$ cat ~/.config/Trolltech.conf | grep font=

Fixed, for me, in (K)Ubuntu 17.10, Artful.
