Not exactly what you wanted, but perhaps a solution nonetheless: you
can arrange for Emacs to pop up the completions buffer in a separate
frame.  That way, completions never mess with your window
configuration, in or outside of ECB.

To see how to arrange for that, read the documentation of the variable
special-display-buffer-names.
