When the popup is displayed and you want to navigate to previous/next word with Alt (on OSX), the popup stays visible, which is confusing.

Navigating with Alt + arrow keys on OSX when the autocomplete popup
was open wasn't closing the popup, which could lead to weird behavior.

The test asserting arrow keys behavior is modified to ensure
this works as expected on all the different platforms.
