Dear Anja,

This issue with autocompletion has been fixed in 'trunk' and will be
deployed to ckan.net asap.

You can only add packages by choosing from the auto-complete feature as far as I know. Since auto-complete doesn't update most of the times you only see the first 5 results, ordered alphabetically. Typing package names or titles doesn't usually change this list. At some point the package pops up for a second and then the first list (ordered list) pops up again. This were clicking fast might help, but if you hit the wrong package then there is no way to remove this added package for this editing process, since there is no way to uncheck the added package now. So if you already added 5 packages, add the wring 6th one, then the only way to rewind is reload the page and add all over again.
