No, I like autocomplete.
As I wrote in what is still below, I have irony-mode and other helpers.
But what is annoying as hell is that ESS decided to
- move focus away from where I am (writing R code)
- move to a completely new buffer (showing help I did not ask for)
- require me to kill the new buffer to get back to where I was
which happens *each and every time* I type a token it knows and could
complete to a help page it then takes me to.
Anyone have an idea what I need to turn on to suppress this?
