Selecting by first letter should show as many as possible that start with that letter

When I am in a drop down list and I press a letter to jump to the first entry that starts with that letter why does it leave that entry on the bottom of the visible entries? It should make the entry the top visable entry so that many entries that start with that letter can be seen.

In more concrete terms if I am selecting a state from a drop-down list and press "w" it should make "Washington" visible at the top instead of the bottom so that I can see Wisconsin (and the other stats that start with "W") without scrolling.

This is just my little pet peeve of the day. :-)
