Every char that is not an alphanumeric char ( function isalnum() ) is
considered to be *not* part of a word and therefore considered as a word
break. Autocompletion only works word-wise.

And the _ char is not alphanumeric.

I'll add more chars to be included in words, but that change will have
to wait for 1.6.x
