With Isabelle/322a3ff42b33 there is now completion for the history text 
field behind it.

It is again one of these typical instances of spending 2h to make it work 
on Linux and Windows, and requiring days or weeks to find out why 
Apple/Oracle don't quite manage on Mac OS X: the focus change after 
completion selects all text.  (Problem still pending.)

This sounds again like a total-existence-failure due on Fedora.  Was "last 
time I tried" already on jdk-7u40?  Just a straw of hope ...
