The problem is that most of the implementation-helpers are disabled in that 
test, because they would require linking the code-completion test to a much 
bigger part of the C++ support.

Does it work of you add another "\n"?

Yes everything gets filtered by kate, I know it causes problems in some cases. 
The filtering can be changed or avoided by using another code-completion model 
and returning another "virtual QString filterString(..)", but that's too 
complicated to me right now for such a little annoyance.
