      Either start QtTestBrowser, MiniBrowser or DumpRenderTree it hangs, the main thread is in dead lock:

      I use the weekly pinned hashes as other QtWebKit people: 7f8c9b7eaf9efcda699d4f170cb72f5c2cb71a1d. Simple examples do work with my Qt5 build.

      After some debugging it seems like this deadlock is the result of another that happens in the bearer thread.

      in QNetworkConfigurationManagerPrivate::updateConfigurations there is this:

      foreach (QBearerEngine* engine, enginesToInitialize) {
      QMetaObject::invokeMethod(engine, "initialize", Qt::BlockingQueuedConnection);

      This waits until the engine initializing on the bearer thread, but that thread gets blocked during this initialization:

      #0 0x00007fff90066bf2 in __psynch_mutexwait
      #1 0x00007fff8caa71a1 in pthread_mutex_lock
      #2 0x00007fff8cdb4e9a in __cxa_guard_acquire
      #3 0x0000000109324cfd in manager at qnetworkinterface.cpp:82
      #4 0x0000000109324eab in QNetworkInterface::allInterfaces at qnetworkinterface.cpp:544
      #5 0x000000010f0beeed in QGenericEngine::doRequestUpdate at qgenericengine.cpp:199
      #6 0x000000010f0beea5 in QGenericEngine::initialize at qgenericengine.cpp:182
      #7 0x000000010f0c9f25 in QGenericEngine::qt_static_metacall at moc_qgenericengine.cpp:55
      #8 0x000000010807248e in QMetaCallEvent::placeMetaCall at qobject.cpp:436

      I don't know what'S the problem here, it's a simple Q_GLOBAL_STATIC initialization. Also, I don't know why it happens only with WebKit (for example network examples using QNetworkConfigurationManager works), it does not seems to me that WebKit does anything fancy. The instantiation of QNetworkConfigurationManager happens only once on the main thread, and there is just one bearer thread that tries to initialize the global static.
