    Default QTimer in QThread - Seem to be always 5 seconds

    I have a QTimer in a QThread that should fire every 50ms (I pass 50 to
    I am developing an application with Qt 4.6.3 under Linux using threads and timers.

    If I create a QTimer and start it with a 50ms timeout it actually fires every 5000ms. If I change 50 to 100 I still get a timeout interval of 5000ms.

    I have tried startTimer and timerEvent and QBasicTimer but get the same problem.

    It appears to have something to do with the event loop.

    Any suggestions as to what is happening?

    I have since resolved the problem. I was using QextSerialPort, as written there is an implicit timeout wait, hence the block.
    Thanks for the assistance.
