    Shaun, your problem is probably something else than what Andy  
reported. Yours is just an unexpected way the auto-completion is or  
isn't employed. I guess the desired behaviour would be that you can  
simply delete the old value and then have normal auto-complete, right?

What Andy reports seems to be a bug in a little-documented extension  
I made about one month ago, whereby you can put a special flag into  
your own presets file that says "please present the last used value  
as a default value in this field". This was intended specifically for  
house number/post code tagging. It seems there is a bug in there that  
leads to the effects Andy has described, and I'll have to investigate
