I'm working with Delphi most of the time and the expansion keys there are
<Enter> or <Space>, not <Tab>, which works great.

Let me add a me too. But maybe this issue cannot be resolved easily.

<Enter> annoys me all the time. Worst case for me is
<Space><Backspace><Enter> when TortoiseSVN expands something that I don't
want to have at the end of a line :-)

Funny to notice that in a development environment (Delphi), keyword
expansion using <Space> or <Enter> feels natural, because you can continue
typing "in a flow", but in a text environment (TortoiseSVN) it feels
OTOH once you start to use the arrow keys to select one from several
matching entries, <Enter> is the natural choice again, but <Tab> would do
the job as well.

I don't know if using <Tab> for autocomplete in the edit box would prevent
jumping to the dialog's next GUI item.

Thoughts, no answers, but I think using <Tab> instead of <Enter> would be
the better choice.
