Snippets do not show up in auto complete box on Windows

Snippets that have a <tabTrigger> attribute which starts with a special character do not show up in the auto complete box on Windows.

A good example for this are the jQuery plugins that are currently available, which contain tab triggers like this one:


If the dot is removed, the snippet will show up in the auto complete box as expected. The same snippets seem to work fine on OS X.

.on does not autocomplete for me on OSX also... are you sure it works in OSX.. any settings to make it work in OSX??
