Hi Bo,

Thanks for replying. Running a separate even-loop is a useful 
workaround, but I'd prefer to have the eventloops integrated. Could I 
use the uikit QPA plugin and use QApplication::exec() to start the Qt 
event loop and just use UIKit to create windows? Alternatively would it 
be possible to write a custom event dispatcher to avoid the dependency 
on QtGui, which I won't need.
