    Description

      Most of times, when I'm typing some source and do the .method() part on some object, if I'm quicker than the code completion (which usually happens) and I write it myself without letting the editor have time to even show a suggestion, immediately after I write a parameter between brackets it gets replaced by a code completion suggestion (which I determined to be the 1st one that appears in the suggestion list), changing my code with some incorrect other.

      Sometimes this may get unnoticed if I'm typing quickly and the substitution is not so evident because it's of a similar length or so.

      I think I sometimes can "predict" it's going to happen because the mouse cursor is "spinning" ("thinking"), showing it's loading suggestions but it an a rather slow way, while I'm typing my code. If what I'm typing is a .method() part, it's sure it will get replaced by a .randomAnotherMethod() after the spinner stops spinning.

      I'm using a 20171017 nightly build, but I'm suffering from this since the Beginning of Times.
