So you're talking about the code completion stuff...

To be able to share the code completion database between projects.

Not it's not a bug.

I don't see a problem here at all. So you have that entry in the list of
code completion databases, just don't activate it for the new project
if you don't need it there.

The databases for code completion are "global" so you don't have to
create a database for Qt or KDE for every single project. This saves
time and space on disk.
