I cannot reproduce this, and I suspect that your qbs build is screwed up 
(Library.qbs not up to date?). If you can really reproduce the problem 
with a clean qbs build, please file a bug report, preferaby with a small 
example that exhibits the problem.
(And of course you don't need to set qbs.toolchain explicitly.)
