      Description

      observation

      When establishing a "long polling" HTTP connection via QNetworkAccessManager to a local server (eg. a Syncthing instance under http://127.0.0.1:8080/) the connection is aborted when the ethernet connection goes down (eg. router is restarting). It is not possible to do any further requests, too.

      problem

      The local connection shouldn't be affected by connectivity changes of the ethernet (or any other) adapter.

      workaround

      thiago suggested removing the bearer plugins on IRC. Maybe it is also possible to use
      QPluginLoader::unload() to disable the plugins only in an application affected by this bug.

      It definitely helps to simply restart the application. When the ethernet connection is initially down, the bug doesn't occur.

      further notes

      The Qt WebKit module is also affected. However, I only tested only the ng version so far (tp5).
