After selecting a new value for the company in batch edit mode, the company name changes to its database id. At least it is irritating but doesn't cause an error. Nevertheless, applying the change will store the right company reference.
BTW: entering the id number as a value also succeeds
It would be nice to extend the limt from 10 to a configureable value and to use ordering.
