With changeset
the completion list is shown with Ctrl-Space. The automatic popup after x characters can still be configured in the settings dialog.

try changing e.g.:


where you move the typing cursor from the end of the "endif" keyword up one line using the up arrow key -- you'll be stuck at the popup list.

either wait a few milliseconds after the user has stopped typing to only then show the popup list, or require and explicit tab input to fire auto-completion.
