[IronPython] [0.9] Tab completion bug

Yes, it is a known problem. The tab-completion is far, far from finished and this is probably the first thing for me to fix - pressing tab at the beginning of the line should not offer options, but simply tab out.
 
Thanks for feedback!

Enter in several lines, play around with tab completion.

 

Then enter:

 

>>> def foo():

... <tab>

 

Yields:

 

... previous tab completion results

 

Apparently the buffer holding the expression to complete isn't cleared after a new line is started.

 

Also, in the event that we are at the start of a line, such that the expression buffer is clear, could we insert a tab?  I know others out there love their space bar, but I'm a tab guy, myself :-)
