           Summary: [Gtk] Extraneous object of ROLE_PANEL in hierarchy for
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Accessibility
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: joanmarie.diggs at gmail.com

Steps to reproduce:

1. Type some text in an entry (e.g. Google search entry).

2. Examine the accessible associated with the entry in Accerciser.

Preferred results: The entry itself would implement the accessible text
interface itself rather than have a descendant which does so. This would be
consistent with what other applications do.

Expected results (Based on looking at the hierarchy of other accessible objects
in WebKit which contain text):


Actual results: 


If there is some fundamental reason why that object of ROLE_PANEL must remain
in the accessible hierarchy, assistive technologies can punt and still get at
the text. However, if this object is indeed extraneous, it would be great if it
could be removed from the hierarchy.
