Autocomplete doesn't work with textareas

Attaching the autocomplete plugin to a textarea doesn't show the autocomplete search menu when typing text.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a text area and attach the autocomplete plugin to it.

2. Type some text into the text box which appears in the autocomplete source.


The autocomplete menu should be displayed.


The autocomplete menu isn't displayed.


This is a regression over version 1.8.14.

I will also commit a failing test for this shortly.

Sorry, didn't see that this was filed against master, since you referenced a regression over a version 2 releases ago.

This regression was introduced by commit 5095871 with the addition of line 42:
