Hi,

do you ever have tried to press TAB a second time, because if the
amount of possible completitions is less than IMHO 5, the TAB cicles
through the possible completitions? The idea for this feature comes
from the tsh, if I configured eshell I used the customize, so I can
not give you the exact symbol. In the group >Application< you will
find the subgroup >The emacs shell<.
