Well, I had checked that it did do what I wanted, in terms of stopping
the buggy completion display. I hadn't checked that it didn't break
the completion in the first place. Oh dear.

I'll remove this and see if I can fix up quail instead with a hook
there. As you say, perhaps the ultimate fix is to change quail to enter
information in a different way, but one step at a time.
