Display all 2516 possibilities?


When at the Konsole I often run programs that accept the Esc key to exit, but then it often buffers an extra one, then when I go use the up arrow to select previous commands, it gives me the message: "Display all 2516 possibilities? (y or n)" This is an difficult thing search for google. Nobody has been able tell me how to disable it for years and its getting to be one of those very irritating things about the linux. I think I'm starting to wear down the n key and I now am begging, can anyone to tell me how to disable it???
