My apologies. I was afraid that my bug report came too late for Qt 
4.8.4. I guess that's what made me a bit impatient. Sorry! My posting 
was not meant as a complaint. In general I'm very happy about Qt.

Thanks for the suggestion. We currently use the vcxproj files generated 
by configure.exe because it allows us to easily build Qt through 
IncrediBuild (distributed compiling). For the time being, this works 
fine for us, but jom also looks interesting.

I'm glad you were able to fix the issue, as you reported at 
https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-27554  Thanks again.

Kind regards, Niels
