I am having a problem getting autocompletion to work correctly in JFormattetTextField.
When I set the formatter factory the autocomplete seems to work as if it was strict
Run the code and write F and press Delete and tabulate out of the field.
I expected there to be a "F" in the field, but it contains "Foo"
If i avoid setting the formatter factory, it works as I expected.
Is this the intended behaviour?
Is there some other way I should enable the autocomplete feature?
public class AutoCompletionTest {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		JFrame f = new JFrame();
		DefaultFormatterFactory dff = new DefaultFormatterFactory(new DefaultFormatter());
		JFormattedTextField tf = new JFormattedTextField();		
		tf.setFormatterFactory(dff); // Disable this line and AutoCompleteDecorator works as I expect
		AutoCompleteDecorator.decorate(tf, java.util.Arrays.asList("Foo", "Bar"), false);
		JPanel p = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
		p.add(new JButton("Button"), BorderLayout.SOUTH);
		f.setSize(300, 100);
