Thanks for the info.  I don't really want to get rid of command
completion but at this point it is the best alternative for me.  I have
to hit the Esc key four times also to activate command completion at a
blank command line, it's when I use say 'Esc-b' followed by 'Esc-f' that
command completion is activated.
Thanks,
kent
