Autocompletion in shell is broken

      In latest MongoDB 2.0.2-rc1 and -rc2 (at least) autocomplete behaviour has changed. Before it was good, as in unix shells, when you hit tab you see list of possible completions. Now (in those rc's), it just writes completion in cirtular way, which is unusable. Please, fix that.

      Also, it doesn't respect UNIX shell keys like Alt+B/Alt+F to go word forward/word backward, Alt+Backspace to remove word and maybe some other key combinations (emacs-like ones).

      I'm not sure if it's a bug or feature, but it's really annoying and I'm so afraid it will go to 2.0.2 that I've decided to create a ticket (at irc noone responded, the only respond on this I got is "go jira.mongodb.org").

      My platform is Linux x86-64.

      Thank you!
