Auto-complete broken for org mode buffers #289

I have tried to enable auto-complete with org mode, but it just let's me down completely.

Whenever the pop up menu opens, I am getting the entire screen cluttered with candidates in various faces. Some are readable, some not. Selection does not work at all. Very often I just see three dots ... and some arbitrary letters.

Since I outline most of my Texts there I do need auto-completes functionally primarily in emacs and there it seems like it works the least.

What can I actually do to fix this problem?

Configuration is just pretty standard, just adding org mode after ac-config. Beside that did nothing

Confirmed here. This only happens when the text "under" the popup menu is outlined. But even no text is outlined, the menu will be not that neat.
I don't know how popup menu and org outline are implemented, maybe the problem is overlay conflict?

It is a popup.el problem. Should be tracked in auto-complete/popup-el#3 or auto-complete/popup-el#46
