I'm not very sure how the auto-completion should be done. There was a
discussion on the gnome-gui-list but not much of a conclusion was reached
(IIRC). I think everyone likes it if tab moves to the next field.
Personally I like the way Internet Explorer does it: If it thinks it knows
what you want to type it pops up a list just below the text field and
allows you to scroll up/down through the possibilities.
