After starting a QOrientationSensor, the event queue is inundated with timer events, to the point where any calls to processEvents will simply hang until the timeout.
To compound this problem there is a QOrientationSensor created for each QWebFrame which cannot be stopped or otherwise controled. Any calls to QWebPage::mainFrame will create a QWebFrame and thus a QOrientationSensor.
Aside from causing processEvents to freeze, this has performance and battery life implications.
