Yes, I did experiment with that already; it fixed the prompt issue but
not the auto-complete issue, in other words I am still seeing the exact
same symptoms:

In [1]:';'.join(__IP.Completer.all_completions('hel')) #PYTHON-MODE SILENT

In [2]:hel

and then if I press the tab a few times (fast, right after each
other), I get it to actually complete:

In [5]:print ';'.join(__IP.Completer.all_completions('help')) #PYTHON-MODE SILENT

In [6]:help

Yes, you are right, I do get them, actually.  In the above, I had
completely eliminated ipython.el, sorry.
