https://bugs.webkit.org/ is the place to report QtWebKit bugs. The wiki page still has this right and should be a trustable reference, so I cleaned it up to remove information that might make one believe otherwise.
The QTWEBKIT_VERSION_STR issue should be fixed in the RC1 already. The inspector seems to work fine in Linux but I'll try next week to reproduce your issue with Windows. If you can report a bug for the JS bridge issue we'll have a look as well.
