a) I searched the source code for the full error message and found that it was 
printing the return value of eglGetError()

b) I googled for eglGetError() and found the possible error replies

c) I grepped the EGL headers for an error constant (any of them) and then 
found the one close to it that had the value 0x300B.

According to Khronos docs, a bad EGLDisplay value. Most likely a null pointer.

void QEglFSWindow::resetSurface()
    EGLDisplay display = screen()->display();
    QSurfaceFormat platformFormat = qt_egl_device_integration()-

    m_config = QEglFSIntegration::chooseConfig(display, platformFormat);
    m_format = q_glFormatFromConfig(display, m_config, platformFormat);
    m_window = qt_egl_device_integration()->createNativeWindow(this, screen()-
>geometry().size(), m_format);
    m_surface = eglCreateWindowSurface(display, m_config, m_window, NULL);

Don't ask me why screen()->display() is returning a bad EGLDisplay. This is as 
far as I can go studying this codebase.
