Hi Dan,

That seems correct behaviour to me.  It's the same line I'm still in the
process of entering after pressing `n'.

    $ abc <tab>
    Display all 261 possibilities? (y or n) n
    $ abc 

See, the `abc' is still there.  The prompt shouldn't be recalculated
everytime it is written to the screen.  There lies madness.
