Yah, this is a major PITA (on the netbsd-5 branch also!), since I'm used to
pressing "Tab" instead of "Return" after my login name.  I've accidentally
entered my password (with people looking over my shoulder) in the login
field a few times already now.

Is this due to a code change or a configuration change?
