Same setup here, except not new config and the "Complete word" binding 
it's at the default of <Control>space.  If the autocomplete list is 
showing, it cancels it, if it's not showing, it shows it.  A few snips 
from the manual:

"The autocompletion list for symbols is presented when the first few 
characters of the symbol are typed (configurable, see Editor Completions 
preferences, default 4) or when the Complete word keybinding is pressed 
(configurable, see Editor keybindings, default Ctrl-Space)."

"...Shows the autocompletion list. If already showing tag completion, it 
shows document word completion instead, even if it is not enabled for 
automatic completion. Likewise if no tag suggestions are available, it 
shows document word completion."

Ah ok.  I don't feel strongly either way if it's good or bad.
