[IPython-user] Avoiding autocompletion for private variables

I've setup the next directive in my ~/.ipython/ipythonrc:

readline_omit__names 1

but ipython keeps showing my the variables that start with '_' when
hitting TAB twice:

In [5]:f.
f._File__getRootGroup      f._pttoh5                  f.format_version
f._aliveNodes              f._refNode                 f.getAttrNode
f._checkGroup              f._reverseRecArray         f.getCurrentMark

What I'm doing wrong?
