Hmm, I get a huge list of symbols to complete against. Even at the
beginning of the field without deleting the initial "nil".

I don't know about windows, but on Unix-likes, the right button would
most probably be button 3.  With a 2 button mouse, you'd either have to
hit both buttons (or the scroll wheel if one exists) to get mouse-2.

This sounds probably a viper problem.  I don't think it's a good idea to
rebind standard keys in emacs just to get viper working.  Possibly
viper.el should override keys that gets in the way.
