I have: In the M$ Internet Explorer, a friend once wanted to enter an email 
address (IIRC).  However, the drop-down box was too small to hold the full 
address, and he needed to look at the ends which were hidden but the only 
part that differed.  I was about to bitch about an unusable M$ GUI, when he 
found that the drop-down list had a resize handle and everything was fine.
I liked that a lot!

Err, maybe not more "details", but if you have e.g. a very high DPI display, 
you might want to increase the size of the color patches to better decide 
about them.

Of course, you're right, it's "[just] a combobox", but I still..it would be 
nice to have. :-)
