Autocompletion in interactive mode doesn't work in 2.5.1

Hi all,

How can I turn on autocompletion when I push <tab> in python 2.5.1
interactive mode? E.g. to give me a list of all methods and attributes
of a given object.

It works great on my Linux / Ubuntu 7.04 installation but doesn't work
on Solaris 10 (x86). I have libreadline.so and libncurses.so installed
and "import readline" is executed during startup, but <tab> still
doesn't work. ArrowUp and ArrowDown however work and I can browse the
history of commands so I believe readline is installed and loaded
correctly.

Any hints?

Thanks

PaPa
