The fix looks good for an editable ComboBox.

If the ComboBox is not editable, it will have the effect of making the HOME and END keys no-ops, which is a (possibly
unwanted) change in behavior. I checked a couple native Windows apps and they have the behavior I would expect: the
arrow keys, and the HOME / END keys navigate the text field for editable combo boxes. HOME and END go to the beginning
or end of the list for non-editable combo boxes.

While we could treat that as a follow-up issue, it would be worth thinking about whether we could limit the change to
editable combo boxes.
