ComboBox: default selection of 'Iowa' becomes 'Iowaka'

If you load this page and simply hit the drop down in Combo Box #1, 
you'll notice that the default selection of 'Iowa' becomes 'Iowaka'.  
This is due the following code within _openResultList in ComboBox.js 
(lines 704-707 in dojo 0.41 build on the community source site):

			if(	(this.autoComplete)&&
				(this.textInputNode.value.length > 0)){
				var cpos = this._getCaretPos(this.textInputNode);
				// only try to extend if we added the last character at the end of the input
				if((cpos+1) > this.textInputNode.value.length
(code needed here to check that input matches our first result??)
					// only add to input node as we would overwrite Capitalisation of chars
					this.textInputNode.value += results[0][0].substr(cpos);
					// build a new range that has the distance from the earlier
					// caret position to the end of the first string selected
					this._setSelectedRange(this.textInputNode, cpos, this.textInputNode.value.length);

I have updated that code to check to see if the entered text begins the text of the 0th result.
