Hey there,

Great that you were able to figure it out why it is failing. Now we need 
to check if changing the spec is an option as maybe we have other CMs 
that actually send q instead of u.
If a spec change is possible we just need to update tp-qt4 to use the 
new spec and everything should work fine.

Let's wait and see what the spec guys have to say about this.
