It looks like the original author (Benny) has decided to describe the
status of the tool as "UNSTABLE". This means that you won't see it
unless you run Gramps without the "-O" flag (ie, without
optimizations). I'm guessing that you have the -O.

How can you tell if you are running with -O and remove it? Two ways:

1.) Edit the gramps command file. Perhaps like this in the shell
(don't type the dollar signs, but what follows on the line after
dollar sign):

$ which gramps
$ sudo gedit /usr/bin/gramps    # remove the -O

2) Run gramps directly without it:

$ locate gramps.py
$ python /usr/share/gramps/gramps.py

Hope that helps,

Would it not be easier to edit the placecompletion.gpr.py file, and change UNSTABLE into STABLE?
