Thanks. I get this bug each time there's a Qt bump in the minor
version. I've submitted in the past a patch to upstream to accept all
minor revision updates of Qt, but he rejected it in lieu of only
updating the version to whatever Qt version is current at the time I
submit the patch.

I'm going to try to convince upstream again to accept all versions of
Qt 4 at least after 4.4. If not, I guess we'll go with the patch to
use Qt 4.7 instead of 4.6
