Thanks Dominik. An additional (and very good idea IMHO :) ) would be to hint that there is only one available completion. I've seen it done with tooltips in a windows IDE. E.g. you type your
and a tooltip appears above the cursor showing foo.doVeryInterestingStuff. When I hit the completion key, the text in the tooltip is used.

This feature was also used when writing method implementations. The header with the method signature was already there, then in a .cpp file write:
void Foo::doSomething(
and a tooltip appears with the complete parameter list. Pressing the completion key fills the whole parameter list in and closes the brace.
