XUI combo-box drop-down tab to select behavior a "bug" or "feature"?

I am working on a XUI dialog made up of drop-down combo-boxes and
check-boxes facilitating attribute editing.

I have noticed some mildly undesirable behavior in the drop-down
combo-boxes.

In a drop-down combo-box, if I use the keyboard to choose a listitem by:
press tab to select the combo-box
type "c"
press the down arrow to highlight the first listitem starting with
"c" or "check"
press tab to select check and move to the next interface item

It appears as though "check" has been selected ... that is, the combo-box
displays the word "check" and my cursor is giving focus to the next
interface item. However, when I click OK in the dialog, the value ultimately
inserted into the attribute is "c".

If, however, I:
press tab to select the combo-box
type "c"
press the down arrow to choose "check"
press Enter to select check
press tab to the next interface item

When I click OK the correct attribute value is inserted into the XML.

This seems like an Arbortext XUI bug. Is this known limitation?
