Some problems about qt 4.8.0 and qtCreator 2.4.1
I have compiled qt 4.8.0 and qtCreator 2.4.1 from source using mingw on several PCs.
For the lastest mingw 4.6.1(32bit, downloaded using "mingw-get-inst-20111118" tool from www.mingw.org), Win7 sp1 x64, WinXP pro sp3 x86 and Win2003 sp2 x86 were used as the OS to compile the source of qt 4.8.0 and qtCreator 2.4.1.
After sucessful compilation in three platforms (with deal with few errors), there are some problems when runing.
designer crashes on both WinXP and Win2003, while works fine under win7 x64. ( the error dialog seems show the access violation with msvcrt.dll (version 7.0.2600.5512 on WinXP) )
qtCreator works fine, except crashes when click on "options"->"disigner" tab under WinXP and Win2003.
gdb shipped with mingw 4.6.1 can not work properly, in all cases breakpoint were ignored. as table 1 shows.
For mingw 4.4.0 bundled in old Qt IDE (2010.05) , all works fine, except the gdb, shown in Table 2.
here are gdb version info, bundled with mingw 4.4.0 from old Qt IDE (2010.05)

My question is how to setup a proper IDE to make the gdb and designer work fine?
"debug logs":http://pastebin.com/aGTzBdbT when gdb crashed (mingw 4.4.0)
Moved to the Tools forum.
I am sorry, but there is little anyone can do about the issue with such little information.
Please "file a bug report":http://bugreports.qt-project.org/ against Qt (Creator takes designer from there) and include a backtrace of the crashes.
the ["bug report":https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-24573] has been created.
I am trying to submit the needed information as more as possible,
but I am not clear where the backtrace can be found,
and what kind information should be submitted.
Any help will be apperatated.
-Thanks for filing the bug report. When you post the link to the bug report here, others are able to vote and monitor the progress as well.-
[Edit] Did not read careful enough and overlooked the link, which is already there :-(
