I really like this facility, thanks very much for sharing it with the  
CCL community. Not having to constantly type meta-slash is nice.

Unfortunately, under CCL 1.2-r11572M if I compile-load this and then  
open a Listener, as soon as I type anything that triggers the symbol-

The workaround I've found is to always open some other hemlock buffer  
after loading anticipatory-symbol-completion before attempting to open  
a new listener which will use this facility.

BTW, and unrelated to Alex's anticipatory symbol completion, I get a  
different instant crash if I hit Cmd-ctrl-D in a hemlock window or  
listener (should bring up the dictionary entry for the word the cursor  
is over in a cocoa text-edit field or do nothing, but obviously, not
