Code completion deadlock (again) and patch

I thought it is worth looking into the C++ code completion problems I
encounter with kdevelop from the KDE 3.5 svn branch.
To reproduce the problem it is necessary to remove all old pcs-files from
$KDEHOME/share/apps/kdevcppsupport and to start kdevelop with a C++ project.
From the project options create a new pcs file for Qt.
Set the cursor at the end of a line in the editor press enter and then any
letter. kdevelop goes into an infinite recursive loop starting in
languages/cpp/cppcodecompletion.cpp, line 1990.
I have modified lib/catalog/catalog.cpp with the attached patch and this
solves the infinite recursion of kdevelop. Code completion seems to work
however I do not have enough time right now to test the patch thoroughly and
I have to admit that I don't know what I am doing. ;-) (Anyone daring to test
As a side note: during the error hunting I had the impression that the
pcs-files are corrupted and unusable if kdevelop is started from a console
and stopped via Ctrl-C.
PS: BDB seems to be version 4.2.52
