I spoke too soon. "del /e /k" isn't used in (allways?) QtCreator. I've checked 
all my shell-win32.conf to figure out which one QtCreator is using. Seems
none of them and the "del non-existant-file" cannot be overridden manually.

But 4NT/TCC does have global aliases. So I tried
  alias del=*del /e /k

followed by: 

in the hope this will be picked up by the 4NT-shell QtCreator is using, but
no luck. I must be misunderstanding 'shralias'.
