[Interest] 4NT shell and qmake

I just installed QtCreator 3.0.3 along with the latest Qt 5.2.0 SDK using the
online installer. I loaded up one of the project in the QtCreator example-pane.
The YouTubeView project. I found that the bug I reported for Qt4 [1+2] involving 
nmake (or jom?) trying a "del non-existant-file" is still present in Qt 5. 

Here is the step where (the qmake generated) nmake is trying to add a 
manifest (edited lines for clarity):

  "/MANIFESTDEPENDENCY:type='win32' name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' 
  version='' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*' processorArchitecture='*'" 
  /MANIFEST /MANIFESTFILE:debug\youtubeview.exe.embed.manifest /OUT:debug\youtubeview.exe 
  if exist debug\youtubeview.exe_manifest.bak 
    fc /b debug\youtubeview.exe.embed.manifest debug\youtubeview.exe_manifest.bak >NUL || 
  del debug\youtubeview.exe_manifest.bak

  4NT: (Sys) Systemet finner ikke angitt fil.   <<<  ! error 2 = "File not found"  (ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)

   OpenGL-  Debug\debug\youtubeview.exe_manifest.bak"

Pushing the "Build project" once more, the project builds since now (it seems the .bak) file
is present.

I use 4NT 5.0 Unideo shell on Win-XP SP3. Please don't advice me to use the
inferior cmd shell :-)

  This bug-report of mine seems closed. But the bug is still there.
