Hi, I just downloaded Qt Creator's sources and perused the welcome 
plugin, try as I might I couldn't find any usage of qml, instead I found 
lots of widgets like QStackedWidgets, QHBoxLayouts and QVBoxLayouts 
being created by the welcome plugin.

I don't understand how not loading that welcome plugin would help in any 
way with any qml problems?

The welcome screen (used to) be written in QML, but Qt Creator doesn't use qmlscene to run it. So, all of this rant is as misplaced as it is unnecessary. The only thing that may be remotely relevant is the comment about Ubuntu's testing practices, but the information we have here is far from being conclusive on this being an actual problem. The author should be sorry for wasting everybody's time.
