[webkit-qt] QWebInspector can't pause

I've built the latest from qtwebkit-2.2-devel using Qt v4.8.0-rc1
under Ubuntu.  When I try to pause JavaScript (e.g. www.google.com
using QtTestBrowser) using the script tab on QWebInspector, it changes
to 'pausing' but never makes it to 'paused'.  The JavaScript on the
page I'm debugging does pause, but it's almost like the JavaScript in
the inspector window also pauses because inspector features that use
JavaScript don't work.  Other pages, such as the
manual-tests/inspector/debugger-pause* tests suffer the same fate
whenever the debugger attempts to pause.  I noticed the same problem
under Windows using Qt v4.7.2 and qtwebkit-2.2.0.

Can anybody confirm this and/or suggest a course of action?

 1. Open www.google.com in QtTestBrowser
 2. Open the inspector
 3. Hit the pause button on the scripts tab and wait a moment for some
JavaScript to execute
 4. State remains 'pausing' and inspector tabs cannot be switched
