To be enoughst i have no idea why the devel user witch via the autocomplete field does not work, but here is a patch :)
Here is the patch.
Patch worked for me. Thanks.
Confirmed patch in #1 works nicely.
Just another note to say I've just re-patched an admin module with dereine's patch in #1 and it's working fine. I've marked this as reviewed but maybe I'm overstepping the mark so forgive me if this needs more testing.
This patch still works great as of 10/11/12 with devel 6.x-1.27.
