Yes, there were two problems:

 * An ioctl() related problem, which I fixed (patch had been sent on
   the qt-interest mailing list)

 * A crash after that. But I was told a few days ago that the crash
   only appeared with the specific example application I was trying,
   and that all the other applications worked fine. Since I got this
   information, I haven't been able to test it by myself. I'll do so as
   soon as I start working on Qt5 again, hopefully this week.
