The *Completions* window is never selected for me.  I tested with Emacs
23 and Emacs 24.  Even better, with the latest Emacs release, the
*Completions* pop up window is even automatically closed after
successful completion.

So I think what you see is caused by your setup, or you use a really old
Emacs version.  Or please give a recipe of what you see starting from
emacs -Q.
