python plugin 2.7 + IU 10.5 + python 2.7 + ubuntu 11.04 + module pika -> no completion

I installed a "third party" python module 'pika' using setup.py from the module. python -m pika finds the module. When I a script in IU10.5 with the python plugin installed, it finds the module.

But I don't get auto completion for pika.<anything>. I invalidated the IU cache and restarted, doesn't help. How can I get completion?

The module is not always possible to analyze. Because Python is a dynamic language. Try to import the module using ipython (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPython). This is a great tool for experimentation. Double press TAB key to display all attributes of the module.

Thought so. That's ok. It would be helpful if idea acknowledged that it couldn't find completions in the status bar rather than just doing nothing in the editor. Sometime the X windows manager will silently intercept keystokes. Thanks.

Well, there's an end to this.  I decided to report the bug for what I thought was the second time.  This time when I pressed the Submit button I was taken to a page that showed that my bug report had been placed into the system and assigned a tracking number.  Lots of other people had reported the same bug.  Someone had determined that this happened for the GTK+ theme for the editor.  I changed to a different theme, and the problem disappeared.  I don't know why my bug report didn't get into the tracking system the first time, but I know what to expect if I ever submit another.
