Description of Problem:
If using a ComboBox in DropDown mode (allowing bound data items + any text),
and there is data bound to the combo box, when now trying to change the
currdent text in the combo box via the Text property, the ComboBox throws an
'Object does not match target type' exception.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Put a ComboBox on any form
2. Set ComboBox.DropDownStyle to ComboBoxStyle.DropDown
3. Use a list of custom objects as the ComboBox.DataSource
4. use ComboBox.Text to set the displayed text to any string value (that is not
contained in the data source!)

Actual Results:
'Object does not match target type' exception

Expected Results:
ComboBox should display the text 

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
change line 813 of file System.Windows.Forms\ComboBox.cs
textbox_ctrl.Text = GetItemText (value);
textbox_ctrl.Text = value;

GetItemText assumes that the passed value is of the same type as all items in
the bound list, but in this case, the value is of course always of type
