Description Michael Fulbright 2002-10-01 18:28:03 UTC
There appears to be a condition under which text entry boxes (for example, the
root password field) will no longer accept key strokes.  If you have this
problem a workaround is to right click on the entry field.  You will get a menu
which you can escape by clicking outside the entry box.  You should then have
focus in the entry box.

Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
