 How can it? There are no changes in public .h files. What is the problem

 The description is the exact text I sent to qt-bugs. I think I forgot to add 
the number after I saw the usual BS response. The current status should be 
that only Qt4.4 has some different and inferior change, my question about 
that went unanswered and I handled that by staying in the 
qt-bugs-sucks-so-why-should-I-lose-my-sleep-over-it mode.

 If there are any problems with the patch, I'll fix it. Qt-copy patches are 
not supposed to be BIC in any way.
