Should work on master.

This still happens for me on the 5529a Revision of MD installed from Wrench. 

What I've noticed about the reproduction of this bug is it can be a little tricky and here is how I've witnessed it.

1) Open the Import Symbol Menu (control+option+space)
2) Start Typing the Symbol you want
3) Hit 'Enter'

Doing it this way seems to cause it to happen about 50% of the time.

The reproduction steps that cause it to happen all the time for me are.

1) Start typing in the Symbol
2) Use Command+Shift+Left Arrow to highlight the entered text
3) Open the Import Symbol Menu (control+option+space)
4) Start typing the Symbol Name
5) Hit 'Enter' on the Symbol name in the Completion window.

It's not really easy to get it right - but I've fixed this special case.

btw. highlighting is not required for the import symbol command.
