when the qt-creator is build with the current version of Qt (5.11.1) it does not show the debug controls from the second run on (see QTCREATORBUG-20724 and QTCREATORBUG-20721)

Additional info:
* package version(s)
** current latest qt packages (5.11.1)
** qt-creator v4.6.2 (prebuild from current arch)
** qt-creator v4.6.2 (self build from git repo)
** qt-creator v4.6.1 (self build from git repo)
** qt-creator v4.6.0 (self build from git repo)

Steps to reproduce (shamelessly taken from my bug report at Qt: QTCREATORBUG-20721):

* move (or remove) the settings folder from .config/QtProject to have a clean start
* Start a new project (or use one of yours) for example the "Qt Widgets Application"
* hit F5 to run debug
** the view changes to debugging and you see all the fancy debug windows
* stop debugging & close the qtCreator
* Start the QtCreator select the previously project from recent Projects
* hit F5
** the view switches to Debug (on the left) but all the fancy debug windows are gone
** And from here on I found no way on getting them *all* back, without deleting all settings on each start of the QtCreator

Some more analysis:

It seems that it has to do with the Qt Version that is used:
(/) works
(n) does not work

|| || Qt 5.10.1 || Qt 5.11.0 || Qt 5.11.1 (distributed by Qt) || Qt 5.11.1 (distributed by arch linux) ||
|| QtCreator v4.6.0(git) | (/) | TODO | TODO | (n) |
|| QtCreator v4.6.1(git) | TODO | TODO | TODO | (n) |
|| QtCreator v4.6.2(git) | (/) | (/) | (/) | (n) |
This task depends upon

This is an upstream regression in 5.11.1, no idea how it can work for you with the upstream provided packages.

Apparently this is no regression since the ticket seems to be closed without any fix. And why its working with the upstream Qt5.11.1 no clue either, but since I could not find the configure and buildflags Qt is using for their packages, I was unable to compare those to the ones from arch.
