Since upgrading to 4.2, our users have complained about another 
behavior change from the old address book expansion style.

You type in a list of nicknames from your personal address, comma

separated, and it tab out of the field.  You don't wait for the

spinner to spin or any suggestions to appear.  You just type in the

comma separated list and leave the field.

Rather than looking everything up, it tacks the default domain name on

to each of the bare words when you hit send. This results in mail

going to places you didn't intend.  4.1 would replace things where it

could when you tabbed out of the field.

I'm not sure how this should be handled.  In cases where there is an

exact match, I think it should just replace the address.   But what should

it do in the case of multiple matches? Maybe something like the

interactive spell check pop-ups?

We probably need a custom replacement for Ajax.Autocompleter to do 
this. I think it's worth it though.
