This is a bug in unsermake somewhere relating to generation. For 
some reason that file doesn't get added to QT3_UIFILES in and 
then the resulting Makefile is wrong also.

I have been unable to work out why, e.g. what makes that file different to any 
others. fixuifiles reports no problem and resaving the file in designer 
doesn't fix it.
