Hmm that's interesting. Have you used pabbrev with auctex? I used to use
it for all modes, but ended up switching it off for latex documents
since it wasn't good at working out partitions between bits of maths and
thus suggested all sorts of crazy "half-completions" when you wrote
e.g. $x_.

If there's a way to customize it to work out word boundaries(?) more
accurately, I'd be really interested to hear. As it is, I tend to use
DIY "C-x a l" and \newcommand...
