A late update of the qmake parser code in Qt Creator 4.6 broke reparsing in 
many cases, i.e. when you change .pro files or kit properties.
Parsing is successful when reopening the project to clean wrongly managed 
We have identified the problem, though there is no patch yet, but we plan to 
have that fixed in Qt Creator 4.6.2.
