Description Max Sauer 2006-09-27 13:02:53 UTC
When using code completion to supply a method with only one possible parameter,
the method is pasted inside souce, with a param selected in blue, so a user can
easily overwrite it with desired value/variable. Semicolon is also provided at
the end of the line.

However, me being accustomed to old editor, I usually press semicolon to type it
and get to the end of the line, which results in an inappropriate semicolon. 

See attached screenshot.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a java file
2) Type
  Math.ex| //pipe stands for carret
and invoke CC
3) Choose "exp(..)"
4) Type ie: "2.1" and ";"
--> The semicolon is inside parenthisis -- could we consume it and jump to the
end of the line?
