the auto fill for me (still 2.2.9) makes a decision after two characters,
and then the third character i type appears at the end of the name
say "country energy" and "coles" appear in my transaction list, as well as
"coles express" to which i append a suburb name
so type 'co' > decision made according to last entry in list.
i'm still typing away so i get "country energyles" when i'm typing "coles"
