That's what I suspected.

Actually it doesn, but now that I think another second about it I think
your problem is somewhere else. Note I'm not a kdevelop hacker, just
happened to check in the source here and there, but I think catalog.cpp
is only valid for the pcs files. I think you should go to kdevelop-devel
with this, as more developer read that list than this one. It seems that
kdevelop's auto-complete for the open project support has a bug in it.

Well, I saw two or three, but I didn't check how old they are...

You're confusing kde and kdevelop version numbering. The current stable
kdevelop is 3.3.x, but it's released in sync with kde 3.5.x. Thus when
kde 3.5.0 was released kdevelop 3.3.0 was too, the same for 3.5.2 and
3.3.2. The next kdevelop release is 3.4.0 which "will be there really
soon now" ;-)

I currently don't use kdevelop (and am using the 3.4 branch anyway) and
I also don't have the time to look into this atm. Please try to find a
kdevelop-developer to help you on kdevelop-devel.
