Howdy,

I should have given an example of how using Esc to try to complete a cross-reference can mess up:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\section{My section}

Here is a reference to the figure: \ref{fig}

\begin{figure}
sdasdasd
\caption{my caption}
\label{fig:mycap}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

Now move the cursor after the \ref{fig and try to complete it using Esc. What you will get is Command Completion taking over and creating a bit of a mess (continued presses of Esc will eventually get back to where you started and the a press of F5 will do the proper job.

Good Luck,
