[Qt-creator] Running and debugging with N9 phone with usb connection

I'm using Qt Creator 2.3.1 Qt SDK 1.1.4, up to date as of today, on 
Kubuntu 11.04 amd64 host.

All in all it works like a dream, quite fast and all.

Two small niggles though:

1. Somehow the USB be connection occasionally hijacks the network 
connection and DNS lookups fail.

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

cures that.

2. If I want to run on the phone, the green arrow always deploys the 
project again prior to running even if there have been no changes.  For 
small projects it's fine, as the deployment is fast, but with bigger 
projects with lots of application metadata it is a bit annoying.
Is there a setting to change that?

Btw. compared to the real device (N9) the QEMU emulator is useless.  
Luckily desktop and simulator targets work well for meego, and seem to 
replicate the device behaviour very well (better than with Symbian 
phones and better than the QEMU).
