Oh, you're right, type-ahead does auto-complete.. but it doesn't
remember values across when I restart the application.

Anyway keeping a trace of all that is typed is not always good idea. It
would remember typos and mistakes too. I could live with it, if the
remembered values are stored (even if I have to purge the list manually
by editing a config file).

That type-ahead concept is also is different from a combo list (no need
for keystrokes to reuse a predefined value), and you can even get both.
