In that case you're using OCompletion. If you load it's latest version, it 
should be significantly faster. Here's a script for loading it:

Gofer new
 	squeaksource: 'OCompletion';
 	package: 'Ocompletion';

This solves all but two bottlenecks (which are related to Shout). One of 
them can be fixed by filing in this patch: 
Here's a script to do it:

'http://leves.web.elte.hu/squeak/SystemDictionary.ul.1.cs' asUrl 
retrieveContents contentStream fileInAnnouncing: 'Loading...'.

I'm working on the solution for the last bottleneck (which occurs when 
your code doesn't look like Smalltalk code at all, or when it sends 
several unimplemented messages), but that probably doesn't bite you at
