Thanks to Mike Klostermeyer for pointing this out and narrowing down the problem. Was very simple, in ColdFusion 8.0.1, setting the delimChar to a blank string broke the autosuggest widget. Code now checks for a non blank delimChar before setting that property.

I'm guessing 8.0.1 uses an updated version of the yahoo.ui widget that has introduced this behaviour.
