Well, I agree that in web pages it makes not much sense and can be activated 
accidently. Almost the same for the location bar. But in KDE's configuration 
dialogs where I _know_ whats in a combobox I really liked that feature, for 
example the identity combo in kmail which I have to scroll daily. The 
absolutely best example for direct activation was somewhere in the backgroud 
dialog--you could scroll over the images combo and have the preview 
immediately. Well... *dream*
