     Users are complaining that if they hit a <return> on a blank or empty command
     prompt within the application, they are annoyed by message about attempting
     to complete on a null string.  Is there a way to avoid that?  This applies
     to both CLIM 1&2.

   This is fixed in ACL CLIM 2.0 final (in fact I believe it has been fixed
   since beta2). I just tried it out with the Address Book demo and hitting
   return at the "Command: " simply gives a new prompt. If you're running CLIM
   2.0 final and still get the problem, could you send me a self-contained
   test case.

Hmm, by golly, now that you mention it, I do remember fixing this bug
quite a long time ago.  The Address Book demo works as Colin says, but
I get the same old lossage in the Listener demo.
