This causes me to select the wrong entry occasionally.
The row get taller as the suggestions need to wrap around, right?

Not sure we have a good fix for this. Do you find yourself tapping the wrong row frequently? Is this something you can learn to workaround?

Correct.

It doesn't happen too frequently but it does happen. I asked, Joe and it has also happened to him. The only way that I can think to work around it is to wait for the search results to populate before clicking a link or hope that I get lucky.

Perhaps we could improve this by making any suggestions that cause a wrapping to come in gradually instead of suddenly. i.e. have the box grow smoothly instead of popping.
