Vaadin 8 + ComboBox<String> + Stream -> ClassCastException

Version: 8.0.0.beta1

If you want to put a stream into a ComboBox<String> you get a ClassCastException if you click on the ComboBox.
Problem is that the ComboBox does not override setItems(Stream stream) and so convertFilter will not be invoked as it is by setItems(Collection coll).

Sample to reproduce:

ComboBox<String> cb = new ComboBox<>();
List<String> items = new ArrayList<>();
items.add("Item 1");
items.add("Item 2");
items.add("Item 3"); 
cb.setItems(items.stream()); // cb.setItems(items) would work!
