Fine this brings some light into the dark :-)

But I am still not happy, so far the situation is:

- problem reporter does report @FIXME and FIXME in both comment types
- problem reporter does only report @TODO but not TODO in both comment types

This difference makes no sense to me.

- Kate highlights TODO and FIXME in both comment types
- Kate highlights @TODO only inside of Doxygen comments (different from TODO)
- Kate does not highlight @FIXME inside of Doxygen comments 

Looks like room for improvement? @FIXME should get highlighted as well.

And finally the help text does not reflect the current behaviour.
