Can't login without mouse

Upstream bug:


For Athena 9 and the the Jaunty Debathena, you could type username, Enter, password, Enter, and you're logged in. After the Lucid upgrade, you need to press the "Log in" button, and I could discover no way to do that without a mouse.

I wonder if this is the fault of our applets that we added, possibly stealing focus. Can someone verify that a stock GDM configured without the face browser (i.e. with a login button) allows you to login without the mouse? If it does, we should fix tihs, but if not, we can report upstream.

Yeah, it looks like the Login button has focus on my stock Lucid VM, so I can just hit Enter to get to the Username prompt. I can't test this at the moment, but, looking at the source, the problem could be that focus_on_map is set to True in gdm-config's debathena-branding.glade (for both of its windows). (The kiosk window sets this False).
