I think found a bug in the latest version of Xamarin Studio:
Whenever I start typing between the opening and closing braces like in
var v = new Vector3(1,1,1);
the overloads list is shown. I always have to hit the Esc-key before I can move the cursor one line up or down.
The setting in "/Completion list/Show completion list after a character is typed" seems to have no effect.
I have checked this behaviour and I am able to found this behaviour.
Case1: Whenever I start typing between the opening and closing braces like in
var v = new Vector3(1,1,1);
the overloads list is shown.
This is the feature of Xamarin Studio. When we write anything inside the method or declare a class by using the constructor that has more than one parameters, it shows its list of overloads. To move cursor up and down to the line we have to press "Esc" key.
Case2: The setting in "/Completion list/Show completion list after a character is typed "seems to have no effect.
This behaviour is also working. When I check the "Show completion list when character is typed" option (Xamarin Studio=>Preferences=>Text Editor=>Completion Behavior) I am getting an suggestion window when I type "a" and if I uncheck this option I will never get any suggestion window.
Please let me know if I am missing anything ?
Could you please provide the build version (Click on Xamarin Studio=>About Xamarin Studio=> Show details)? So that we can reproduce case 2 at our end.

I have also checked this behaviour with following builds and I am not getting these behaviour mentioned on bug description.

Thank you for the quick response. I am using build 3.
I think it would be better if the overloads list is only shown directly after typing the opening brace ( or on demand using a hotkey like Visual Studio does or older versions of Xamarin Studio do. But please do not show it whenever an arbitrary key is pressed anywhere between the braces. This behaviour slows down development a lot. Most of the time I do not want to see the overloads list. Especially when altering values of vectors in my case. Please revert this feature or give the user an option to enable it.
You are right, I was mistaken. This feature works as expected. I mixed them up. The overloads list is not shown here.
I have check this issue and with the help of "Comment 3", I am able to reproduce this issue.
Steps to reproduce
1. Open a "Console Application" on XS.
2. Write the following code in the "Main()" method
string s = "Test";
3. Replace "es" to any other character ( for example: "est") inside the "s.IndexOf("tes") method.
4. An overload list will be shown.
I observed that when I edit/change the parameter in a method which has overloads I am getting an overload list each time when I rename or change the parameter.
Regression Status: This issue does not exits on XS 184.108.40.206

Fine, I really like the screencasts. Keep up the good work! :)
I wasn't sure if that's a bug. This is the behavior we had :)
The parameter hinting worked that way - if you're used to it you do not see that. But your use case is valid - it's anoying but I never recognized that it was.
I changed the behavior - the hinting is now much less eager to show.
Thank you very much. I appreciate that! :)
