ComboBox: does not filter on focus

Create a simple dijit.form.Combobox with some initial values. Enter the box and type some text in order to see how the dropdown appears and filters the values. Now click somewhere else of the Combobox to loose focus. Enter the Combobox again and expand. The list will not filter - to accomplish that you need to delete a character and retype it again.

This is working as intended. Manually searching either with the down arrow or by clicking the down arrow button causes all results to be returned. The rationale is that if a value is already present (either initially or from a previous user-interaction) and the user wants to change it (and hasn't entered any more characters), then it's more likely that it's not filter text since the user would have supposedly finished the filter operation in the previous interaction. In the (hopefully rare) scenario where further searching is desired, the previous value is not overwritten (even when autoCompleting) after a full search so it's straightforward to backspace and retype the previous character to begin filtering again.
