I have recently tried doing PyQt programming with Wing IDE and have

auto-complete definitions like QtCore.Qt.UniqueConnection. It is not
able to complete .Qt. I am using Windows XP with ActiveState Python

Looking at the Source Browser and turning on the Show Imported Symbols
option I can see QtCore but the last listed item is
QSharedMemory(QObject). The list appears to be in alphabetical order

there some setting somewhere that I have to increase to enable full
auto-completion of QtCore? When doing PyQt programming it is essential
to be able to auto-complete the QtCore.Qt namespace.

My current workaround is to start the Python shell and do:

  from PyQt4 import (QtCore, QtGui)

QtCore.Qt auto-completes correctly in the Shell (presumably since it
is introspecting the actual QtCore object) and I can cut & paste the
