 Maybe it should rather default to Dropdown list or some other mode that does 
not appear to be broken to somebody who has never run into these problems 
yet? If I'm getting Short automatic right, it will still break if the newly 
typed text has never been entered before. IIRC minicli in KDE3 defaulted to 
Dropdown list and I think those who can handle Automatic and wish to save the 
one extra keypress in every case can handle changing the mode as well.
