You will need to isolate any of the global variables in the components JavaScript so they are unique to each usage of the component.

As it is, vars like `autocomplete` will be duplicated by both components. The Javascript code won't be able to isolate one from the other.

One option would be to identify all the locations in the code where a common var or id are used. Then modify the component code so the identifiers will be unique for each component. There is probably a more refined way to share common.
