           Summary: Webkit erroneously submits forms while typing  Japanese
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh PowerPC
               URL: http://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: paul at hiddenfortress.net

As anyone familiar with Japanese input knows, typing Japanese involves
inputting phonetic characters (Roman characters or kana), choosing the correct
kanji, and hitting "return" to confirm the selection. Hitting "return" in this
instance should not register as a return or line feed to the browser.

However, Webkit does just that on some Japanese search engine pages, like the
one linked to in this bug report. When I visit the site and begin entering a
Japanese search phrase, Webkit submits the search form as soon as I hit
"return" while entering Japanese text, even though I'm not done yet.

The "normal" Safari does not do this.

As a side request, it would be really, really nice if Apple had a Japanese user
testing Safari/Webkit. There are almost *always* issues with it that would be
perfectly obvious to any Japanese user after 5 minutes of use.
