[ BUILD # : 2009040632 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.* ]
While editing a ruby library file, the code completion/hint dialog
popped up; however, continued typing did not update the list with
additional filtering based on the keystrokes, nor did the dialog
vanish once the typed value could not be found within the code
Reproduced using the following steps:
While typing, at the end of a class name, hit the period key.
While the "Scanning in progress" tip window is displayed, start typing and continue typing for a few keystrokes.
Once the dialog is displayed, backout the keystrokes up to, but not including the period.
Now type again. The keystroke events don't appear to be processed after this.
I wasn't able to reproduce, but based on the description it seems that the issue must be in the code completion
infrastructure -> reassigning to CSL for further evaluation.

This is not a duplicate of the erasing text issue #160940.
In this case, the code completion dialogs are not responding to specific keys when they are displayed.
In this case, I believe the error is that some mouse keys are not mapped by the code completion dialog properly.
This is most prevalent for me right now in Java EE Web applications.
In the JEEWeb situation, the code completion dialogs display very quickly; however, the back arrow key does not appear to be recognized as a cursor movement key when the dialogs are displayed. As a result, the user must resort to hitting the ESC key to kill the dialogs before moving the cursor, or they must switch to a mouse to move the cursor.
