Autocomplete dropdown detaches from control when form scrolls



If an autocomplete control is placed on a form, down arrow is pressed to see the autocomplete dropdown results and scroll bar is used to scroll the form behind the control, then the autocomplete control detaches from the control and always stays stationary on the screen. This only happens on the user application, and not in the Developer Studio & base PRPC which runs on the SFAi framework that the application was built on. This issue was first reported on a mobile device, but is replicable on a desktop running IE.
