      Description

      If I provide modified arguments to QApplication they are NOT used by WebEngine/Chrome/Blink

      e.g.:

      QApplication a(argc, my_argv);
      qDebug() << "my_argv: " << qApp->arguments();
      // ("C:\\temp\\app.exe", "--ppapi-flash-path=./pepflashplayer.dll") but no flash
      

      so my_argv should be passed down to WebEngine but not honored

      starting app manually from console works as expected:

      app.exe --ppapi-flash-path=./pepflashplayer.dll
      

      Starting app from IDE with properly set Working Directory and Arguments (--ppapi-flash-path=./pepflashplayer.dll) works too

      Is Chromium still relying on arguments retrieved by GetCommandLine() ... in that case I'm not sure if this is a BUG or feature request to fix QWebEngine to conform to Qt design specs and use QApplication provided arguments actually.
