You get rid of it by pressing Escape.

Yes - using Escape to close a popup or similar is pretty standard.

Maybe there should be another way in case the user doesn't realise this.

A Close button might make sense.

There is a minor misfeature in that if you've started typing you
have to type Escape twice (the first removes the drop-down and the
second closes the input area).  This is similar to how you sometimes
have to Enter twice if you use the arrow keys to navigate the
drop-down menu.

Fixing these might require doing more custom JavaScript to implement
the input fields.  Not a priority or blocker, I think.
