The yellow box you're referring to appears in international keyboard  
layouts to give you access to accented characters. Apparently, your  
keyboard is trying to place a "^" or "¨" on top of the next character  
you are typing but instead, it prints that character in front of the  
autocompletion string. Since I don't have this situation on my  
keyboard I don't know what the solution is. Have you tried to  
redefine the autocompletion commands in autocompletion.plist?
