Bug 426781: Qt content assist is too aggressive
In Content Assist cases like: q-> (when the cursor is to the right of the arrow operator) the name that is returned by the content assist context is the empty string. This was used to check if the QObject::connect function applied. Since the empt string matches all bindings the Qt assistant incorrectly continued. I've added a check to stop processing when the current name is the empty string.
