I can't seem to get the debugger to start on my Mac, installed using the Mac installer (open source version), when I do click on Debug, it launches a terminal window, which then contains:

Badly placed ()'s.
If I edit that script (/var/folders/...) it seems to be a bash script, and my shell is set to /bin/tcsh (for a variety of reasons). Is there some place I can set my shell variant in QT Creator, and have Qt Creator write out something my shell will accept ?

I already tried

exec'ing /bin/bash before launching QT Creator from the commandline
setting the environment SHELL variable to /bin/bash
launching the last line in the script (which seems to be what is actually necessary) from the terminal window.
... but no joy. Any other ideas ?
