Almost there.  Clicking on a list item or the scrollbar works to select an item or scroll.  Clicking outside the box *before* clicking elsewhere works to dismiss box.  Clicking outside the box *after* clicking inside dismisses the box, but also results in the following, printed twice.

Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "F:\dev\cpython\lib\tkinter\", line 1699, in __call__
    return self.func(*args)
  File "F:\dev\cpython\lib\tkinter\", line 745, in callit
  File "F:\dev\cpython\lib\idlelib\", line 257, in _hide_event_check
    if not self.autocompletewindow.focus_get():
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'focus_get'

The immediate fix is to catch AttributeError or, perhaps better, wrap the body of _hide_event_check with "if self.autocompletewindow:".  There should be no need to hide the window if it is already gone.

I am puzzled as to why clicking in the box affects later clicks outside the box.
