Autocomplete listbox getting truncated by the browser window border

Browsers: Can be reproduced on IE(8, did not test on 7) and FireFox-3.6.13

OS: Windows XP

jQuery UI autocomplete version: 1.8.1

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch: page in either IE 8 or FireFox.Minimize the window such that the combo-box is at the bottom of the window or slightly above it.

2. Type is something, say 'c' and observe that the list is hidden or truncated by the window border.

It is easier to see the list in this case by scrolling down the window, but in my case my combo-box is placed right at the bottom of my page which is not scrollable. So I have no way of knowing whats displayed in the list.

I want a similar behavior like the dropdowns. When a dropdown is long and collides with the window border, then the listbox simply overflows the window border.

I have also posted on the forum, but did not get any responses. Here is the link for your reference:

It's impossible to render the same way as a native element.
