I would agree QT is not perfect but on the flip-side
- It is the 'last man standing' of x-platform UI's.
- It's actively developed using the latest C++11/14 standards and supported by both a commercial organization and a robust LGPL community
- Is has a new lease of life through PyQT5 and PySide being the 'de-facto' way to build Python based desktop UI's. 
- QML is quite interesting

I don't know why QT and OSG seem to fight each other so much, but it seems a PITA to get things working properly as the OP and I have both found mysterious issues popping up that require trips into the debugger and the QT and OSG source. I had to advocate for OSG as other developers were keen to use QT3D instead.
