Writer form with Listbox to reproduce error on OSX

When a listbox in a form contains entries with diacritics like "ä", "ö" or "ü" the type ahead does not work for the corresponding entries.
I have tested it with several listboxes with fixed values or database tables. The attached sample is a Writer form with a lisbox using fixed values. When you select it and start typing the names show up correctly except for the one with the "ü". 
On a Linux system this effect does not show; only on OSX Yosemite.

Testing on 

Build ID: 9dbac35b1e55c49b2f1e595f4dfe3437c3fedb58
Locale: fr_

When I typed "Mu" without the diacritic, straight after opening the document, this worked, however subsequent attempts, after selecting a different name via the mouse or by typing, failed.

Even if I try and type with the diacritic it fails to select the correct entry.
