Could you please disable autocomplete in Console dialog?

Quite often when typing a command in "Enter command" edit box (Commands->Open terminal) autocomplete function recalls older typed line and overwrites what I am typing. This annoys a bit.

I think only having history list accesible by Alt-Down could be enough.

Does it really overwrite what you're typing? It should never overwrite, it should only autocomplete.

For example
I type

last user1
w
WinSCP adds these to history list. I exit WinSCP.
Then I type

last user2 | head -n 10

After this command completes, I press HOME, Ctrl+Right, Ctrl+Shift+Right, Shift+Left and type
last user (I'm going to do last user1 | head -n 10)
Just as I have typed
last user1
autocomplete removes | head -n 10, but I would like it stay :)

I know this is a common problem of Windows(Borland?) common control :)

Anyway thanks for a great program!
