from a secondary thread does not work at all, from the ioslave's main thread 
though it works perfectly (at least for file://)

nah, does not work in my situation. I did grind through that with ervin month 
ago. :)

I think I tend to never ask any questions and try to solve it on my own. But 
once I get out the first one I start discussing every small issue.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your patient reading of all my chaotic emails.
I solved the issue by properly separating the search result reporting (done in 
a separate thread) and the stating through KIO (done in the main thread in my 
own event loop once listDir is called).

The Nepomuk search KIO slave works perfectly now including updates. Will block 
soon. :)
