I don't think I did this. I'll check tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure that 
I noticed this before (and I can't think of anything I did that would 
touch this). They don't disappear when you leave the line (the sigassist 
does however, I believe).

Hrm. Note that you shouldn't have to trigger a rename-assistant, just 
insert/remove text anywhere in the view.

Thanks for feedback. Also, re sig-assist, any rough idea what it would 
take to be able to get the type range thrown in during the building of 
the DUChain? If it's something I can do in a day or two without any epic 
restructuring, I'd much rather do that than turn the sigassist into an 
ugly hack.
