      Description

      Whenever I start Creator I get an error message about missing libwinpthread-1.dll:

      This seems to be caused by a qmake.exe I added. It is from Qt 4.8.5 and built out of source using MinGW gcc 4.8.

      In Qt Versions settings, Creator shows the warning "qmake does not exist or is not executable" for this qmake. When I click "Browse..." and select the very same qmake.exe again, the error icon disappears and the Qt version can be used without any problem until I restart Creator.

      A different build of qmake from Qt 5.2.0 using the same toolchain does not cause this problem.

      When I add MinGW's bin directory to PATH before starting Creator, everything works fine.
