Hi all,

Please forgive a cross-post from IRC since noone seemed to be around
yesterday to answer it:

my autocompleted fields have an annoying property where every second
character I type, the drop down will disappear even though it should match -
type a further (matching) character and it appears again

eg, imagine a field of country names, and I'm typing Australia:

AU (dropdown appears) S (dropdown disappears, and stays away no matter how
long you wait) T (dropdown appears) R (disappears) A (appears) ... etc

on a more minor issue, if you then backspace all the way to a blank box I
get a visible, but tiny, square which is a completely empty drop down

I'll dig into the jifty JS if required, but I thought I'd see if anyone else
solved this before I do. I assume the trunk is substantially different to
