I forget the exact symptoms, be we've had strange problems like that if there are two different files in the project that have the same names.

In some cases the problem goes away when deleting the entire build folder and re-configuring, but not always... I can't see any particular pattern in these errors, other than that the file it complaints about definitely exists in the location pointed to by the error message. For example:

All these projects include a common qmake include file, and it's probably something stupid I've done there, but I just wanted to ask if anybody have had similar problems, or any helpful advice on how to debug this...
