Autocomplete combobox issues

Description (last modified by )
The autocomplete combobox has the following bugs: 1. submits forms when you select an item 2. does not take into account the initially selected option 3. you cannot set the value of the combobox programatically I solved these issues and the code I added will work for jQuery ui 1.8. Note: I also have a 'set_empty' call that will only set the combobx if it is empty. I was using this for starting with a value if one had not been previously set. Feel free to rip it out if you don't want/need it.
Initializing the input with the value of the select is a no-brainer. Need to look at the others. The provided implementation would need to be refactored to use the set-method in the select-event.
In Chrome 5, enter a charakter and backspace: The resulting menu gets way too wide.
