When I'm using completion-at-point (and completion-in-region-mode more
generally), I find that I always have a *Completions* buffer that stick
around when I don't want it. *Completions* is supposed to go away during
the course of normal editing as the completions it contains become
obsolete, but sometimes it doesn't --- imagine moving back to the prompt
after completing a command in comint.

The following patch makes C-g in the regular command loop exit
completion-in-region-mode, getting rid of the *Completions* buffer. It
seems like it's doing a decent job so far. This patch also makes it
easier to work with a two-window Emacs: otherwise, C-x o

Comments? Better ways to make *Completions* less annoying in stock Emacs?
