unfortunately I have no idea what the IndexCompatLevel stands for and 
comments on KDE forums talks about "heavy rewriting" so don't touch. I 
did and everything went berserk...

but you have the other 2 parameters mentioned? Believe me it made a huge 
difference to "restart" the indexing and let it go undisturbed. At least 
for me.. and yes Groups are in autocompletion for me now
