<aol> me too </aol> But I took my code from Javier's titletoc package.

Anyway here are the intances for `Homology Theory', James Vick, GTM #145,
Springer.   The leaders could be
  \leaders\hbox{\kern\@tempdimc\hbox{leader@action}} or xleaders...?
as this would make the effect of leaders-sep easier to guess.

        {number-format=\textsc{Chapter~ #1}\\,
        pre-v-action= \addvspace{10pt},
        leaders-sep= 1.5pt}

{       object-indent=12pt,
        leaders-sep = 1.5pt}

And contentsobject template contains
     \hbox to \@tempdima {\COnumber@format{#3}}
