Hi Alejandro,

Thanks for replying - and sorry for saying "Thanks" 2 months later! I feel terrible.
There was a listener which was nulling out the text for some reason, i.e. imagine something rogue like this:

textField.addTextChangeListener(event -> textField.setText(""));

In most cases if the network is fast, it's not noticeable - but when it slows down it looks like it's backspacing your text. Very odd we had that in our codebase.

Anyway - thanks for the help again mate!
