This case should certainly work both in the editor and in the shells.
Check the Editor / Auto-completion preferences and also if this is
in a shell be sure that the Source Analysis / Introspect in Shells
preference is on.

If problems persist, please submit a bug report from Wing's Help
menu and include the error log w/ a description of where you are
working (shell, debug probe, editor).
