1) The first item in the list of selected items doesn't get removed from the comma-delimited "values"
2) Auto-suggest will let you choose the same thing twice, only on the first item (ie "jake", then "jake" again)

These are due to the way you are removing the value. You are doing .replace("," + value + ",", ","). However, the first item doesn't have a leading comma.

I've fixed this by using a removeFromInput() function instead of your .replace() method:
function removeFromInput(val)

                var inputs = values_input.val().split(',');

                for( var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++ )
                    if( inputs[i] == val )
                        inputs.splice(i, 1);

                values_input.val(inputs.join(','));   // trailing comma for compatibility

    Thanks for putting up a fix, I just noticed the same problem. One thing you missed though, is that the first entry can still apear twice if it's typed in manually (ie. is not in the autocomplete list). To also fix this, just change the second condition in this line (case 9 / 188):

    if(i_input != "" && values_input.val().search(","+i_input+",") < 0 && i_input.length >= opts.minChars){


    values_input.val().search(i_input+",") < 0
