Painting with QPrintPreviewWidget - different results on Windows, Linux and Mac

i want to paint a rectangle of 100mm x 100mm on a QPainter (or printer or what else)
and display it in a QPrintPreviewWidget.
Somehow the results on the screen differ on Windows, Linux and my MacOS X (Mavericks) machine.
Same code has different output (same on Mac + Linux) but different on Windows.
I paint a rectangle at position 0,0... and on Windows there is a white border (margin?) but same code
on linux and mac works as expected ( rectangle at 0,0 starts direct in top left corner without any margins).
Printing and PDF export works great only the output of the pages of QPrintPreviewWidget differ.
See a screenshot attached dispalying the output on Windows and Mac...

Then painting like this:
void TestSite::paintEvent(QPaintEvent *)
painter.fillRect(0, 0, 500,500, QBrush(Qt::red));
The result differs on each machine. Only some pixels but it's not equal as expected.
Any ideas whats going on here?
