Can anyone throw some light on how to make the GtkComboBox work like a Windows combobox under Linux? The documentation states that it can but I can't get it to work the same!

I have a nice long list of items to choose from.
The theme has been set to include "appears-as-list" - so I have the scrollbars (That trick took ages to find !!!) so I can scroll up and down.
Unfortunately the scrolling takes ages and I would just like to enter the first part of the item I want into the entry box and have the selection move to the first item that starts with what I have typed in.

I have tried with and without entry but the real method continues to be elusive.

Googling turned up references to the "feature" actually not working since 2001 - I can't believe that but I doesn't inspire confidence that spending weeks more effort will actually achieve the results.
