You used q_atomic_test_and_set_ptr in your code. This QAtomic code is the 
whole reason why Q_GLOBAL_STATIC isn't documented right now: all of the 
atomic code isn't documented.

Using Q_GLOBAL_STATIC is already risky, but if we get a promise it won't 
change (and it probably won't), we can use it. But using the low-level 
atomic methods may be even more of a problem...
