You know Sergio, I gave up trying to "fix" anything in Qt. The  
submission and build process was beyond a nightmare. Many, many, many  
good fixes were lost over the years because many many many people had  
fixes lost in that process. Probably still are being lost because so  
many of us who tried over the years simply gave up. Even if there is a  
new process, most of us just won't bother.

This particular bug identifies the complete falacy of automated  
testing. If being able to compile under C++11 really is a requirement  
then the automated test build should be forcing C++11 and this  
shouldn't have made it out. If abandoning C++11, which appears to be  
the direction, really is the direction, then it is not a bug, but  
death of a standard. At some point, as younger developers want to play  
with all of the new toys, that will happen.
