#823 CTRL-T not working as mentioned in tora documentation

In tora documentation it is mentioned that CTRl-T will auto complete table names. But what CTRL-T does is just swap the lines. eg
#Select * from cu(Cursor)
On pressing CTRL-T at the cursor position what is does is:
#Select * from cu

I am using tora 2.1.3 on windows XP and tora revision 3793 on openSuSE 11.3., for Oracle 11 and MySql 5. This happens for both Oracle and MySql.
For openSuSE 11.3, I compile using the following versions of software:
gcc - 4.5.0
qt - 4.6.3.
KDE - 4.4.4
glibc - 2.11.2-3.3.1

    after a ’.’ character TOra will this the available columns for the table referenced by the

    also look up tablenames using the CTRL+T key which will list all tables starting with the
    same word as you currently have the cursor in. When the completion list is open you can
    navigate it using Up, Down keys and selecting an entry using Return. You can also remove
    the list by pressing the Escape key. The completion values are saved in the object cache
    and can not be used until it is read. If you find this annoying you can disable this in the

    Is there any other shortcut for completing usernames? I installed TOra from tora2.1.3-win32-setup.exe and still CTRL-T just swaps lines as mentioned earlier. Is this fixed in some svn version.

    There are a lot of tables in database I am working on and it will be a great help if I could know the right key combination for completing table names.

    I am having the same problem under mac osx snow leopard. the table completion does not work and only swaps the lines. the column name completion works when typing a dot but the the return key does not insert the selection into the editor :-(

    comfirmed in windows xp and openSUSE12.2.
    ctrl+t can only auto-complete column names , not table names.
