Okay, so the \completecontent should be put inside another component, right?

For me the trouble lies more in my second example "Another case, same 
problem" because the "\component c_something" calls are also considered 
as "actual code", not only the \completecontent. Using a (fake) product 
in this case seems to me like a workaround.

Thank you very much so far,
