I'm using QTC 2.5.2
Based on Qt 4.8.2 (64 bit)
Built on Aug 9 2012 at 04:27:54

The source was compiled with,
QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -std=c++11
QMAKE_CXX = c++11

(gdb) b main
Die: DW_TAG_<unknown> (abbrev = 53, offset = 9518)
	has children: FALSE
		DW_AT_type (DW_FORM_ref4) constant ref: 9531 (adjusted)
Dwarf Error: Cannot find type of die [in module ...
