I have attached a patch to disable this. The swap over happens when
the number of items gets sufficiently large and a jQuery-based widget
called select2 replaces all select boxes in Galaxy - unless explicitly
disabled. I understand the desire to disable this. I am not sure
anyone is really very pleased with select2 for multiple select widgets
- it might be worth just disabling it for multiple select form
elements all together globally. I don't know.
