#752 Parentheses completion misbehaviour in console


When editing a line in the pydev console, typing an opening parenthesis will automatically add a closing parenthesis to the line. Any text on the line that is to the right of the cursor will be deleted, so typing an opening parenthesis is about the same as delete to the end of the line.

This behaviour can even be seen when there is an opening quotation mark somewhere to the left of the cursor, so this happens even when editing inside a string.

As the other types of brackets don't seem to have a completion feature in the console, maybe this could be removed for parentheses as well.

    That's already fixed in the cvs (so, fixed for 1.3.19)
