Code completion

I've just upgraded from Ubuntu Breezy to Ubuntu Dapper and hence
kdevelop from 3.2.3 to 3.3.2.

Code completion seems to have gone very odd in the mean time.
If I type the word "be" in a comment, it brings up a huge
dropdown, starting with the word "class (bars_0)" then
listing everything else. All the classes begin with the
word "class" in the drop down, and it does not seem
to be matching the word typed. After a few classes with
bracketted names, it goes on to classes like "class ABFXBayerMono"
which is a real class, but should not have the word "class"
there I presume. If I select this, it inserts the word
"ABFXBayerMono" (correct), but as this did not begin with
"be" (the word I typed), it is bizarre it suggested it.

What process builds the list in the first place? Do I need
to rebuild it having changed versions? If so how? (I've
rebuild the executable from scratch to no avail).
