      Description

      QQuickWidget operates the following way:

      • Create a QQuickView. The underlying platform window is never created.
      • Create an offscreen surface. On systems with support for pbuffer surfaces (EGL) this will be backed by a pbuffer surface.
      • Create a context.

      On systems where the EGL implementation offers both 16 and 24-bit pbuffer surfaces but only 24-bit window surfaces, the context and the pbuffer surface will have incompatible configurations, unless the a 888 format was explicitly requested via QQuickWidget::setFormat().

      With the default settings the 16-bit configs are chosen. Which means that the pbuffer will use a 16-bit EGLConfig while the window/context a 24 (or 32) bit one.

      Generally this is not an issue since a QOffscreenSurface is usually created after having a context, from which the actual format can be queried (via QOpenGLContext::format()).

      For QQuickWidget this is not the case. There is neither a context nor a (platform) window available when creating the QOffscreenSurface. Hence we cannot know what underlying configuration the context and window would use...
