[OSM-dev] JOSM bug on tagging presets

I have had a fairly long time had a similar issue when editing tags.

Say I want to change a way from highway=unclassified to  
highway=residential, I have to either type the whole of residential,  
as it won't auto complete; or delete the highway tag and create a new  
one, when the residential value will auto complete.

Personally I find this behaviour really annoying, especially when  
fixing the work of yahoo tracers.
