    Is this behavoir a known bug, or is there something wrong with my implementation?

    My implementation of RadComboBox locks like following:

    <tc:RadComboBox ID="_radComboBox" runat="server"
                                    Width="250px"
                                    Height="250px"
                                    CssClass="stringBox"
                                    AutoPostBack="true"
                                    MarkFirstMatch="true"
                                    EnableLoadOnDemand="true"
                                    HighlightTemplatedItems="true"
                                    EnableVirtualScrolling="true"
                                    ShowMoreResultsBox="true"
                                    ShowWhileLoading="true"
                                    LoadingMessage="Loading..."
                                    ShowDropDownOnTextboxClick="true"
                                    OnSelectedIndexChanged="OnSelectedIndexChanged"                              
                                    OnItemDataBound="OnItemDataBound"
                                    OnItemsRequested="OnItemsRequested"
                                    OnLoad="OnComboBoxLoad">

    I requestet the data in the MethodCall "OnItemsRequested".

    If user clicks in the Textbox an empty ListBox is rendering and in background the "OnItemsRequested" method get called.
    When this method returns values, they are shown as normal in the listbox.
    Now, if the user should request more then the first items (per Default every call of OnItemsRequested returns 10 Items), the "Loading..." string is shown above the List. 
    This is what i expected the listBox should do for the first call on DropDownTextboxClicked.

    It is a problem, when the "OnItemsRequested" method needs some time for response.
    For the user it looks like, there a no items in list.
     (Because of blank list)

    Is there something wrong with my implementation, or is this a known bug of RadComboBox?

    Im using Telerik.Web.UI.dll in Version 2012.1.215.40.
