[ESS] Problem with ess tab-completion when max.print option is set too low

This took me a bit to track down. In my ESS process buffer, sometimes
tab-completion was not working on certain functions (noticed it with
unique), yet was working with other functions in the base package.
In my .Rprofile, I have set some options, including:
options(max.print = 1000) ## default is 99999
This is what seems to cause the behavior. If I have max.print set to
1000 and start R through ESS, and then type uniq<TAB>, it will not find
any completions for unique. ("No completions for uniq" is displayed in
When I remove that option, uniq<TAB> does what I expect.
This is with ESS 5.3.6, R 2.6.2.
