not finding variable names

I may have discovered a small (slightly inconvenient) problem. It seems that
Emacs is not updating its list of variables properly.

I was trying to set ps-landscape-mode like this:

M-x set-variable <RET> ps- <TAB><TAB><TAB> etc...

hoping to get an auto-completion.

In fact when i first open a file (plain text), it doesn't know there is a
ps-landscape-mode variable at all. Only when i access the ps-print group, by
the shortcut (M-x customise-group <RET> ps-print <RET>), or by the pull-down
menu, does it let me do the:

M-x set-variable <RET> ps-landscape-mode

It's not a serious bug but i hope this was useful for you.
