Build 204: Intellisense problems

Hi,

I am having several problems with Intellisense.

1. On a default install, when I type a dot, I get two overlapping intellisense windows: one from VS, and one from ReSharper. The ReSharper window is on top. Hitting ESC closes the ReSharper window but not the VS window (have to hit ESC twice to exit intellisense now). Selecting a completion in the R# window completes the symbol, but does not close the VS intellisense window.

2. In an attempt to fix this problem, I tried turning off VS's intellisense. However I found R#'s intellisense replacement to be lacking in several key areas:
2a. Speed - it's much slower than VS
2b. Does not automatically open when I start typing; I must either type a dot, or use Ctrl-Shift-Space. This is irritating.
2c. Does not automatically complete xml tags in comments.
2d. Cannot select desired method parameter signature using up/down keys - only way I found to do this was to use the mouse.

3. Due to the problems above, I tried turning off R#'s intellisense and turning on VS's intellisense. However it seems that R# broke the "Enter" key when interacting with the intellisense dialog. Instead of completing the currently selected symbol, it actually inserts a line break into the source code, but leaves the intellisense dialog open.

Are these known issues?

This one has always bugged me, too. I prefer the VS/Visual Assist immediate
approach here.

2b. Does not automatically open when I start typing; I must either
type a dot, or use Ctrl-Shift-Space. This is irritating.
