When typing the name of an option, the onchange event is never fired. Even after defocusing the <select> element. The event fires using up and down arrows.
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Select the "aaaaa" option. "aaaaa" is written in the console.
2) Hit the down arrow. "bbbbb" is written in the console.
3) Hit the "c" key. "ccccc" is NOT written in the console.
4) Unfocus the <select> element. "ccccc" is NOT written in the console.
Spec : http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Events/events.html#Events-eventgroupings-htmlevents
Even if the specs says that the event should fire when the element loses the focus, other browsers are firing the event each time a new row is selected.

I think this is the right place to fire this event but i'm not really confident.
However, the testcase and the original application are fixed with this patch.
