This patch causes selection to wrap if UP is pressed while the first item is selected, or DOWN is pressed while the last item is selected.

Should this behaviour be controlled by a switch? I did not think so, as it is what I would expect, however I may be wrong.
(Alternatively, double tap UP at top and double tap DOWN at bottom could cancel autocompletion; I can write up a patch for this if it would be useful.)

    You can move to the start/end of the list with the Home and End keys so I can't see any reason for this patch. Other IDEs don't do this - just checked Xcode and Visual Studio.

    Are you saying Home/End already do this, or suggesting that as an idea? Pressing Home or End currently cancels the list (at least it does here).

    Home/End already do this: try in SciTE.

    Thank you. This probably an implementation detial on my end then; I will be looking into it. (This ticket can be closed.)
