+1 from me, it's entirely reasonable to want to name database objects
in any human language and use auto-completion.  It's not working today
as you showed.

The patch looks correct to me: it counts characters rather than bytes,
which is the right thing to do because the value is passed to substr()
which also works in characters rather than bytes.  I tested with
"éclair", and without the patch, tab completion doesn't work if you
press tab after 'é'.  With the patch it does.
