I can't connect to the boost server at the moment, so I haven't looked
at the changes, or what the issue is. But if it the qt5 fix only
involves code that isn't usually loaded, then it might not be that
problematic. Depends on what the change actually is though.

I don't think it's worth fixing a test case.
