Jquery autocomplete plugin fix for single click focus

Jquery autocomplete forces a double click to get the drop down to show up. That’s no good for me. I’m using the jQuery autocomplete plugin instead of a Select box drop down. It needs to have the attributes of a dropdown, with the extra UI goodness of autocomplete pairing down a potentially huge dropdown list.

I’m going to be really lazy. I talked about the problem in a Google group thread here:

Here’s the patched plugin code:

Enjoy!
