after updating to 2.7.0, command line completion doesn't work anymore. I
understand that the package rcompgen is now part of utils. I hadn't used
rcompgen before but completion worked without it (I double checked it
using an 2.6.2 version on another machine). Now, it doesn't work, even
after switching on all option via "rc.settings". I updated R using the
opensuse 10.3 repository. 

For instance I have a data frame d. When I enter


I see a list of files in the current directory instead of the names in
the data frame.

What can I do to turn it back on?
