Hi Innokentiy

Thanks, your answer gave me the hint I needed. And yes, I was being stupid :-)

Problem was that I used `target_sources( PRIVATE mywindow.cpp PUBLIC
mywindow.h )` misinterpreting what `PUBLIC` does. I figured it would
add it to the `PUBLIC_HEADER` property; I would never have imagined
that it causes the `mywindow.h` header to be added as a source to the
targets that link against the library! So, I should do some RTFM on
all the new shiny features in CMake...

Kind regards
