signon tests failing when built against Qt 5.2

Bug Description

Please see for details.

It's not yet possible to upgrade to Qt 5.2 easily, because of build failures like this bug report that prevent full dist-upgrade from the PPA. Therefore, if you are using chroot / virtual env or otherwise ok with removing Unity temporarily, do sudo apt-add-repository ppa:canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-beta2 and see for an alternative upgrade method (the quoted part) that can be used already to setup Qt 5.2 environment. If interested, see the dependency chain at

Not having signon rebuild prevents rebuilding various account related other packages.
