Description Christoph 2011-01-03 10:52:31 CET
Product Libxfce4util is an uneducated guess (I found xfrun4 in Ubuntu package xfce4-utils).

When I hit Alt-F2 and type one of my recently used commands (e.g. "firefox"), the auto completion mechanism reacts too quickly and I get something like "firefoxrefox" instead: after the first 1-2 characters, it recognises the command and completes it - while I'm still typing. That's not what I'd expect. 

Correct behaviour should be something like this: Suggest possible commands in a dropdown list, but don't auto-complete them automatically. Wait for the tab or cursor down keys to select an entry. Just like the address bar of firefox for instance.

I know I'm not on the latest development version, so please excuse me if this is already fixed. I'm testing Xubuntu 11.04 (alpha1) and would be very happy if this could be fixed in the final release. Can anyone verify if this happens also in the latest version?

Thank you in advance for looking into this.
