I'm having a problem with QTextBrowser. Seems to be a pitfall because I have found that it has different behavior depending on what is the current working directory...

For example if I say



browser.setSearchPaths(QStringList("/my/path"));
browser.setSource("index.html");


then everything works fine... unless there happens to be an index.html in the current working directory... in which case it still opens /my/path/index.html as desired... however the supporting content is not found! Whereas it works fine if working directory does not contain index.html!

You can (and in this case probably should) always use an absolute path. QCoreApplication::applicationPath() might help you with this if you need to access a path relative to the application binary.
