[R] completion doesn't work anymore

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?
