Is anyone using bbdb and icicles?

I'm having problems with bbdb-complete-name when icicles is running.

The icicles-completion buffer opens up as normal, but whenever I click
on one of the suggested completions I get 'Minibuffer is not active',
and nothing completes. Manually switching to the completion buffer and
selecting one of the suggestions (by pressing RET) inserts the address
at the end of the buffer.

To reproduce:
1. Start emacs without my startup files:
   emacs -q --no-site-file
2. Load bbdb by evaluating the following:
   (setq load-path (cons (concat (getenv "HOME") "/site-lisp/bbdb/lisp/") 
   (require 'bbdb)
   (bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)
   (add-hook 'gnus-startup-hook 'bbdb-insinuate-gnus)
3. Load icicles by evaluating the following:
   (setq load-path (cons (concat (getenv "HOME") "/site-lisp/icicles/") 
   (require 'icicles) ; Load this library.
   (icicle-mode 1)    ; Turn on Icicle mode.
4. Switch to *scratch* buffer and type 'c' (I have 2 entries starting
with that letter in my .bbdb)
5. Manually run bbdb-complete-name
6. The *Completions* buffer pops up and then won't complete, as above.

Not sure if this is a problem with bbdb or icicles (or me!) - any help
