when using the Octave GUI I opened a new file t1.m in the text editor and
attempted to type a line:

x = linspace(0,2*pi,201);

After typing "x = li" a code completion box comes up containing "line" and
"link" but not the "linspace" I'd like to have.
Unfortunately all my further keyboard input is ignored unless I do a mouse
click outside that selection box. After typing the next character "n" the
suggestion box is coming up again, no keyboard input is accepted. So I have to
take the hand off the keyboard two times while entering this line just to get
rid of the suggestion box.
So my temporary solution is to turn code completion off.

Generally I consider code completion a good idea. While showing the suggestion
list the editor should continue accepting keyboard input and shrink/hide the
list as the user types more text or manually completes the word.
