Navigating autocompletion list

When I enter the beginning of a function name in the sage notebook and press tab, I get a list of possible completions. The first few of these can be navigated using arrow keys, for the rest I apparently have to use the mouse.

Example: type cycl and press tab. The list looks like this:

cyclic_permutations
cyclic_permutations_iterator
cyclotomic_cosets

cyclotomic_polynomial
cyclotomic_value

The first three can be navigated using the arrow keys, the latter three can not. When I add one more letter, turning the input into cyclo, then I only have a single navigable function and still can't reach the other two.

Why is that? Is there some configuration setting I could tweak to affect this behavior?
