           Summary: text fields grab the focus and won't let go
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: timothy.c.bates at gmail.com

since the nightly's switched how txt INPUTs are constucted, I find that once
text is entered into an input, very often the keyboard input is "locked", i.e.,
pressing enter, return, or tab does not have the expected effect of submitting
the form, or moving to the next field. 

A good example is right here on bugzilla. 

bug # <INPUT class="txt" name="id" size="6">

If you enter some text into this input, then press return, the page becomes
   * You cannot then use enter to hit find.
   * Cannot press buttons with the mouse.

If you press esc (or return) 3-4 times (and hear a system beep on each press),
you will find the focus is free when the beeping stops. You can activate
elements on the page (like the Find button etc.)

This must be known, but i searched bugzilla to no avail. Wrong search terms, I
