Please do touch it, I don't think the current behaviour makes much (read
any) sense either.

And speaking about *Completions*, would it be possible to fill the
completions column-first, not row-first as it is now?  I find it quite
unreasonable, as the display is column-wise, but not so filling, making
it harder to quickly skim through the list.

(my English is not perfect, so in case it is not clear from the above
currently, the completions come like this:
aaaa    aaaab
abb     abbbb
bbb     bccc
ccc     dddd

whereas more sensible (because of the column-wise display) IMHO would be:
aaaa    bbb
aaaab   bccc
abb     ccc
abbbb   dddd
