[Interest] Qt 5.1.0 beta bugs

Attached to this e-mail is a small application that demonstrates three (apparent) bugs I have run into when trying to use Qt 5.1.0 beta on my mac. My apologies if they are already known. Each of them is, to me at least, a critical bug that will prevent me from moving to 5.1 (I'm having other issues with 5.0 at the moment). The bugs are:

1) When generating a PDF using QPDFWriter, and setting a page size (In this example QPrinter::Letter), the page size is actually set to something very small. The generate PDF button in my example app demonstrates this.

2) Menus are not properly merged with the application menu. Note that the Quit command appears in both the File menu and the Application menu, but only the one in the file menu actually runs my quit code.

3) Menu keyboard shortcuts are not functional when the keyboard focus is in a text input field. Try hitting command-D (which should open a dialog box) while the cursor is in the text input field. On my machine at least, a "d" character is typed in the field, but the menu command is not run.

It should be noted that numbers 2 and 3 are new since 5.1 - they appear to work properly in the 5.0.x builds. #1 existed in 5.0.x as well.

If anyone can give me a hint as to how to work around these issues, or a link to a bug report, that would be appreciated. Thanks!
