This is a known problem caused by our introspection code interacting
with this particular object's __getattr__ implementation.  We're working
on it but it's hard to fix so is taking some time to get right without
breaking other things.

For now, the only solution is to disable completion entirely, so it's
a high priority item for us to fix.

Thanks for the bug report, and sorry for the problems!
