As I said yesterday, I also have problems with it. Now, I've
narrowed down to when problem occurs:

    o   pressing 1 x TAB on a proposition works great, if there
        is only one possible completion;

    o   pressing 2 x TAB on a proposition leads to problems when
        multiple completions are possible.

I don't understand why (yet), but I see the problem occurring
when `pabbrev' opens a completely new buffer taking the full
frame space.

When it opens a smaller buffer above or below the current one
(in which we edit), the behavior is totally correct, and the
really desired one!

Hope we will understand, so that the problems will go away -- as
this is really a fantastic mode, as far as I've already seen.

Best regards,
