User station seems to be refreshing when it shouldn't

I have a sub form that contains a list.

The sub form has a button that when pressed,
               adds a new record to the list
               enters some data into one of the fields in the new record
               and then sets the focus on the first field needing entry in that new record.

Works fine ....  Except....

On one user's station, occassionally when he clicks to add a new line, it does everything it is supposed to do but then takes him to the first record in the list, instead of staying on the new record.

It appears that it is REFRESHING or REQUERYING the data and causing this.

possible clues....
It seems like it does this when he gets enough records to force the vertical scroll bar to appear

It also seems like his combo boxes are autocompleting incorrectly, for example....
if there are names like CARLSON, CARLTON, CARPENTER, if he is entering CARPENTER, by the time he gets to the letter "P", it has already entered in "CARLSON" and refreshed the control.

I am putting this together in 2007, he is using 2010... Problem?

Is there some simple setting in ACCESS (or OFFICE) that is refreshing things when it shouldn't.
Thanks in advance.
