Problem happens for long completion texts in {PROMPT||||}

When the default is printed as well as the next selection, it creates
a problem.  You can always go through all the options, and I see no need
to continue showing the default when people are moving through the selections.

It is ok to have the default when the selection consist of just one word, but
not when you have longer categorisation sentences.

Archaeological Data Archiving Protocol
Heavy Minerals and Particle Size Analysis
Micromorphology and related Microscopy (SEM Analysis, X-Ray Diffraction)
Thin Section Reference (Polarised Light Microscopy)

I had already tackled that problem.  But it is a different problem.
