A note on \cite completion in vim latexsuite

vim latexuite has a built in \cite completion feature (and a lot more nice stuff). According to its documentation, by pressing F9 inside a \cite{} environment, the list of bibliography items should appear. For me, it did not work because of two reasons.

  1. There was a space before the name of the bibliography item. Unfortunately, some of the databases on the net produces BibTeX records that way. So, it should be fixed as

    @article{ name-of-publication,   =>  @article{name-of-publication,

  2. Cite completion needs python support. To have it (and also support for Perl, and Tcl scripting) vim-gnome package is needed in Debian (and in its derivatives, of course).
