[Development] Qt5.1.1 delayed a bit (was: RE: Qt5.1.1 known issues)

Hi all!

I discussed with Tuukka this morning and we make the decision to postpone our Qt5.1.1 a bit and try to take fix for QTBUG-31803 in. We agreed it is better to fix this now and get at least something work in 10.9.
Plan is to make release next Tuesday (27.08.2013). If this fix isn't working or breaks something else then we make our release with existing content but if fix is OK then we release Qt5.1.1 with it.

Regarding not knowing if this patch breaks something else, I think we know
it quite well when those platforms we have in the CI pass successfully and
test installer to work in 10.9. Of course we do not have 100% coverage,
but the risk for this should be relatively low?

Even with this fix in, I would not declare everything to work in 10.9
before we do have it in the CI (likely in 5.2), but having at least some
things to work is valuable. Thus I would like to have the fix in 5.1.1,
unless it does cause big hassle at this point in time.
