Sorry, I cannot follow. What does that mean, "instantly rebuilding"? 
Please explain
     - what you do
     - what you expect to happen
     - what happens instead.

Depending on what the problem is, running qbs from the command line with 
the exact same arguments as displayed in the "Equivalent Command Line" 
widget of the Qt Creator build settings, plus "-vv" and redirecting the 
(massive) output to a file can often help. For instance, it will tell 
you why a file was or wasn't rebuilt.
