Click in the text box and type a "t". The autocomplete box will be slightly to the left. This only occurs on the initial keypress after the page loads and will display normally if one continues to type. This did not occur in 1.8.24 and has been observed in Chrome 22 and IE 9.

Confirmed in IE9, but works fine for me in Chrome 21.

This only occurs with body { margin: 0; }

Turns out that absolutely positioned elements aren't really absolutely positioned if you don't position them...

Autocomplete: Set the top position of the menu so that the menu doesn't affect layout. Fixes #8656 - Initial position of autocomplete is incorrect.
