I have a normal text field in a content type of max length 255 char. It is set to "autocomplete for existing field data". If I try to enter more than 128 characters, I am unable to. The cursor just stops. It works fine without the autocomplete widget setting. It doesn't necessarily need to autocomplete after that limit, but the user needs to be able to add extra text. Any help much appreciated.

The attached patch should fix this issue ... anyone want to take it for a spin before I commit? (NOTE: 90% of this patch is removing whitespace where needed)

This ended up being trivial enough to fix that I went ahead and committed.

DOH! .. So of course my impatience got the better of me.

If you used autocomplete widgets using predefined values, then the patch in #1 causes an error.

I've committed this patch to rectify...
