comboBox onblur event not called

Dear all

Please study the following combobox in my jsf:

<rich:comboBox id="cities"
defaultLabel="#{bundle.defaultEntry}" >

<f:selectItems value="#{myBean.cities}" />
<a4j:support event="onselect" reRender="cities" />

<f:validator validatorId="myValidator" />
<rich:ajaxValidator event="onblur" />

The validator "myValidator" should do some validating when the onblur event is called. It works, at least when I select an entry from the list
and leave the combobox. However when I click into the combobox, not selecting anything and then leave the combox the onblur event
seems not to be fired: the validator method doesn't run. The same thing happens when I vist and leave the combox with tab-key.
Anyone has an idea why that is an what I could do?
I agree. Here's the link:
