Is there some possibility to add this characteristic in future? I don't know
how much difficult is it, but it will be perfect to substitute
tib_lookupcombo, since it have this problem with height of combobox.

I think to be a big overhead have to add another tib_query only to emulate
the main dataset to achieve it.
