[Development] QtCreator, non-Qt project, GCC and C++11

Hi everybody,

Trying to set up a non-Qt project compatible with C++11 and using GCC, but
QtCreator keeps highlighting C++11 syntax with messages such as "auto' is a
C++11 extension".

I am confident that my kits are set up correctly (building Qt applications
that use C++11 works fine). For the non-Qt project I am trying, I have
tried various combinations of adding

CONFIG += c++11


QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -std=c++11

but no luck.

GCC 4.7.3, Ubuntu 12.04, Qt 5.3, QtCreator 3.1.1 (for Linux 64 bit).

FYI, I literally only created a new, non-Qt C++ project and have not added
any files, nor changed the .pro other than in the above manner.  The only
code I added to the generated main.cpp is

for( auto x : 10 )
   int bob = 0;

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
