I really cannot imagine how am I supposed to pick up an item from let's say 50 
entries. _Unsorted_ entries.

The other report is about bibliography database, my report is about inserting 
into document entries _from_ this DB. So it is not about managing database 
itself. See the discussion: metadata, database format, ODF format, and so on.
My report does not even touch such topics.

I don't see how this is related to displaying list of entries, I guess 
currently to populate combobox you use
and my wish is to change it to:

End of change. 

The other report is about vast change in whole engine, mine is just about 
sorting a combobox. No matter what backend you have you can always present 
data (in "frontend") in random or ordered fashion. So one thing is not 
dependent of another (reopening).

Reassigning to DNW to get more info on this.

@DNW: do you already have this issue on your list?

Agreed that the list ought to be sorted. But note that by typing the text you seek, the list automatically jumps to the next matching entry (which is better than nothing).

However, the Alt+N does NOT put the focus on the combo list, nor does tabbing do it. You must click on it with the mouse.
