AFAIU it might matter, wherefrom you open the shell. It may or will have it's 
own (minor-)mode, where TAB completion is provided or not. In different 
available python-shells for example, TAB completion might be performed by 
different functions.

Call M-x describe-mode from inside shell, to get info which mode is behind, 
which keys are set etc,



Hi Andreas,

thanks a lot for helping. Here is the output of M-x describe-mode:

Enabled minor modes: Auto-Composition Auto-Compression Auto-Encryption Autopair
Autopair-Global Blink-Cursor Column-Number Delete-Selection Desktop-Save
Diff-Auto-Refine File-Name-Shadow Font-Lock Global-Font-Lock Global-Visual-Line
Line-Number Menu-Bar Mouse-Wheel Shell-Dirtrack Show-Paren Tooltip
Transient-Mark Visual-Line Yas/Global



what says M-s describe-key TAB
