All my problems went away today when I upgraded to v3.  I had been
trying to use v2, since officially the newer one is "unstable."

In bug #1, "M-TAB conflicts with ispell" (and they could have also
mentioned, the window-switching keys of half the desktop managers in
existence, but they didn't mention that), they say:

"The suggested workarounds are to rebind the ispell key (the BBDB
binding is not configurable at this time)."

It doesn't matter because I think all of this refers to v2.  BBDB v3
doesn't have a proper Info manual yet, and it tab completes with just
TAB, no M-TAB needed.

Looking forward to the v3 manual!

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from
oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent
that will reach to himself.
