Not as an exact solution to your problem but ..
KDE is not too consistent in its support for multi-screens, it seems to
create primary xxxrc files (under kde2/share) for your main screen and a
subset in xxx-screen-1rc; options for minicli are in kdedesktoprc and
kdedesktop-screen-1rc - there is an option CompletionMode which happens to be
0 and 5 for my two displays (though I haven't noticed any difference in
behaviour of late) - I can't find the docs on my system but this seems to be
what you are looking for.
