[IPython-dev] more tab completion issues.

Yeah after looking at it again, I noticed certain things, like  
__class__, had 4, and not 1, entries in the listing.  It's a bit  
annoying, since with something like numpy's 'array', it'll fill up  
your window with 320+ items.

I thought about debugging it, but I don't know how to intercept the  
'tab' keystroke in the tab completion.
