Is it possible to disable the help-overlay for

(so if i start to write a function like mean( … I get a small yellow overlay window with
the possible arguments etc.)
It sometimes takes really long on my machine till the overlay appears after I type a
and during that time, I can't do anything except to wait.
Also, when I mistype a function-name, it seems like this help mechanism is searching even
longer since it probably loops through all the function-names.
This half-second in which I can't do anything is kind of annoying and most of the
time I don't really get important informations through this overlay window.
hopefully I found a solution. I've just updated the "R bundle". Now the
command "Show Function Usage" will run in a background task. I.e., that you have
not to wait until the tooltip come up or not for unknown commands. Normally the script is
rather fast but it depends how many packages you have installed.
[a feedback would be welcomed]
PS FYI how to disable that functionality can be read in the "R Help" (simply
delete the associated key equivalent "(" of the macro command "Show
Function Usage and insert (" with the help of the bundle editor)
