I think that this should be reported to Qt Bugs.

A possible solution would be to add a member function to manually force QFile 
in the sequential mode. (If unlike Qt3, it cannot be done anymore in 
QIODevice, it can still be done in QFile.)

Currently QFile (on Unix-like operating systems) only sets sequential mode for 
a character, block or FIFO device, if I understand Qt's source code.


Have a nice day!
