jshell tool: line redrawn on each completion

      Description

      Completions used to take place in-place. This was elegant. Now the line is always redrawn -- this amounts to three lines. If tabs are used frequently it is all you see on the screen.

      For example typing "ArrayL<tab>" does the following:

          jshell> ArrayList
          ArrayList
         
          jshell> ArrayList

      This is distracting, confusing, and verbose.

      What it appears is that the behaviour which makes sense when there are multiple choices is being applied when there s only one choice.
