[MonoDevelop] Autocomplete behavior question

I was talking to mkrueger on irc and asked that I move this to the mailing list.

In monodevelop, if whenever text the cursor is touching will be
deleted if you hit ctrl+space which triggers the auto complete list.
This has thrown me off a few times.

For example, if you type else and place the cursor at the beginning
and hit ctrl+space selecting anything from the list like if will
delete else and replace it with if.

I was wondering if maybe doing something like highlight the text that
the cursor is touching, when you hit ctrl+space, would visually show
that it is going to delete that text with whatever you select.
