Thought you were a bit quiet ;-) Not more holiday?

Or just "Previous messages".

I think that would remove a lot of the confusion, because at the moment
the blank box makes it look as if there is no history there. That's why
people aren't even opening the combo.

The down side is that if you _do_ open the combo, something will always
be pasted whether you want it or not, and then you may have to delete
it. If the pasted text was automatically selected, then it would be
easier to see what you have just inserted, and easy to delete it all
just by pressing the delete key. What do you think?

That was also suggested yesterday, and I can't see why it is better. I
like it where it is.
