Thanks Leonid,

   with this option it works - kind of strange - but the same way with 
or without my fix. It is possible to
select variant from popup using mouse and numbers and with arrows - 
that's a little bit different
story - for some reason left arrow (but not right one) being also 
translated to the TextArea so cursor
starts moving and we will have that letter inserted in the wrong place.

   However this is not being affected by my fix - it works the same way 
with or without it.

With best regards,

Once i hold down the e it starts autorepeating. Moving mouse or using arrow keys do not help much. Any option i have to turn on for that?
