This same issue was posted for a 2008 version of this control. I have version Asp.Net Ajax Q2 2009 sp1 and this same issue is happening. If I have my empty message set, the 1st character will not fire the itemsrequested event. If I clear the empty message property then everything works okay.

We have fixed this issue, so please download the Latest version available in your Client.net account and upgrade.
the new release fixed this problem. However, when I look at an aspx page in the designer with the new release combo-box, it shows 2 down arrows on the control. It doesn't render that way when the page is loaded. See the attached jpg screen shot
