Yes, but ESC-TAB runs widget-complete (if you have not changed anything).

Sorry, forgot to say I am using the trunk sources.

But I just downloaded the official 23.3 binaries and tested. It does
not work for me. When I hit ESC-TAB I just get a message:

  complete-symbol: No completions available; use M-x visit-tags-table
or M-x semantic-mode

I can see "complete-symbol" only in *Messages*, not in the echo area.
(How does that work?)
