This happens because Vim checks for typed keys while finding matches.
It then sees the CTRL-P before the first completion is found, causing it
to stick to "ju".

When sourcing a script with Normal mode commands, there is an extra
check that prevents the completion to be aborted.  I think we should do
the same when using feedkeys(), as it's a very similar thing.  And it's
very difficult to do this in another way.

However, this may break completion plugins.  Or make them work better,
hard to predict.  I can make the change for this and await reports...
