Trunk is continuing to evolve, but it's only been about two months since
the last CPAN release.

I think the issue is that the menu is closing because it's
invalidating the previous dropdown and going back to the server to get a
new one... but I don't know why it's not coming back. I'm not seeing the
tiny box, but I am seeing the alternate-character issue.

A patch would be hugely appreciated.
