I just noticed I was a bit mistaken: the Designer application has the same issue.

I think it is caused by creating a QMenuBar explicitly, without specifying a parent object. That eventually leads to the application icon appearing in the Dock, too, so it would seem that

- QMenuBar::QMenuBar(NULL) calls into code that's not in the platform plugin (OR the cocoa plugin is loaded in addition to the xcb plugin...)
- applications that present the expected, parented QMenuBar somehow call the QMenuBar ctor with a parent suggesting that an example of how to do this properly already exists, somewhere.

So the development ML might be more appropriate even that the qt-creator one; cross-posting there.
