[MonoDevelop] I need some feedback on the automatic code completion

I got annoyed by auto completion in the past...
I start writing something like "Something.", and as I type the point, it
turns into "SomethingElse." for some reason. Unless I'm mixing things up
with for loops, when trying to declare an iterator variable which annoyingly
turns into a class with a similar name. I haven't used MonoDevelop that much
yet, so my memory isn't too clear.

But anyway, maybe if typing a comma, a period, a space... or any
punctuation/special character, then *don't* auto complete. Only auto
complete on letters and numbers.
