R# intellisense improvement

It's a long time since I used Visual Studio's Intellisense, but while we're waiting for VS 2010 beta 2 support I noticed that VS2010's Intellisense may be better than R# in the following case:

type the following (or similar)

     var perm = new PrincipalPermission(

now in VS 2010 if we type 'P' VS shows a list of items starting with P but highlights PermissionState, i.e. matching the argument type of one of the PrincipalPermission constructor overload.

In VS2008 with R# the same code, Intellisense shows a list of items starting with P but always highlights PrincipalPermission, which doesn't really make sense.

Am I missing something, or is this something R# could do better?
