New Redesigned Autofilter popup doesn't support keyboard

Please add feature of autofilter, that we can jump to the intended word in list by typing the initial few letters. 

The popup seems to have been loosed the ability to use the letters/numbers in the keyboard to arrive at one item. This was very useful in long list selection. 

Use case: I only want to see red from a list of 10 colors.
Old way: click type r, select, I see what I need.
New way: click, unselect all, scroll through list, select, click ok.

I use currently (K)Ubuntu 
12.04 LTS 64bit, 
Libreoffice Calc = Original Distribution Version 
LibreOffice, 350m1(Build:2)

I could not reproduce this on either 3.6.6, 4.0.4 or 4.1.0. 
After opening Autofilter pop-up you can start typing to go directly to entry you have on mind.

Selecting only one item might be a bit more complicated than it used to be (you have to either: (a) unselect all, go to desired item, select or (b) go to desired item, click first button by "All" checkbox), but is definitely possible.

Therefore, I mark this issue as FIXED.

@Pavel: could you verify that this is indeed fixed in any supported version of LibreOffice?
If it is not, could you rephrase title of this report and provide additional comment explaining what do you mean, exactly?
