I've concluded that for my particular case I have to implement XEmbed
clients by myself (I've briefly read XEmbed spec and ICCCM and see it'll
be not that difficult). I've just compiled a simple embedder (without
XEmbed support yet) and it works without any of previous problems.
Embedded kpdf works fine even with a KParts::MainWindow around it and
mixed message loops in one thread.
So I state that there are issues in interoperability of Qt and Gtk+
XEmbed widgets that I used, gtk+ 2.6.4's GtkSocket and
qtxembed-1.2-free, the latest tarball from Trolltech (they even did not
work together out of the box and I had to correct _XEMBED_INFO type
field in QtXEmbedClient, so it looks like it was a bit fondly to expect
them to work without problems)
