Hello Carsten,

I apologize for the very late response. I wanted to give a full one
but I haven't fixed the bug yet.

It happens on my setup too, if I remember correctly it is due to the
function highlightedItem returning an empty String as a result of
having no completion window (a Nothing). I don't know why that is
happening (comments appreciated)

A completion window is needed to know the number of rows and columns
of the window because the index in the state is in terms of a current
row and a current column.

I will try to get the (Maybe) current autocompletion String saved in
the state instead of the index, but that may lead to possible invalid
states (e.g. XPS { complString = Just "google-chrome",

Did you try the other module?
