The docs are wrong (outdated).  Wing 2.0.3 added use of the Local 
Settings are in order to avoid poor performance when the regular 
Application Data area is on a network disk.  You should of course have 
a cache area in the directory indicated in the error-log (please let 
us know if not!).

The delay may have been that Wing was feverishly analysing your code 
initially and had not yet gotten to the code you wanted completion 
for.  It tries to do analysis on demand but will only wait so long 
before giving up on a particular request so often the cached 
pre-analysis data is needed for completion to work right.
