Tagging users within post pops the user selection menu off screen

iPhone SE with latest iOS 11. Not sure what triggered this, as I beleive this has occasionally worked.

It’s that user with the weird “name”, you can see it, probably a spammer.

cc @awesomerobot we should have mobile protection for stupidly long spam names here.

This could be related to the real time indicator of someone writing a reply. You wrote a response just as I was about to tag you.

This does not happen always… @codinghorror

I deleted the spam user, but this is a valid bug.

We had a width: auto added inline on the mobile autocomplete for some reason. I removed it (it was overriding the static width needed to truncate long names with CSS).

@tgxworld it looks like you added it over a year ago (UX: Take into account of header when rendering autocomplete. · discourse/discourse@5d2aa95 · GitHub), I tested it in a few cases before removing and I couldn’t see why we need it.
