Are you certain this is true on all platforms? I seem to recall one where you 
can get at argc,argv through global variables (or where they functions...), 
possibly OS X or otherwise MS Windows.

Then it must have been the last line in main(),

return qApp->exec();

I don't suppose QCoreApplication can see it's being called with a dynamically 
allocated `this` and do a `delete this` before returning so I guess I have 
another location to report.
