I can't reproduce this without knowing what is in your startup files: it should work with --vanilla, so please try that and try to eliminate whatever is in your .Rprofile etc that is causing the problem.

Incidentally, using rcompletion is counterproductive in R 2.5.1 RC: the base functionality using rcompgen is a more sophisticated version.
