When using the askbot login method, the username and password fields show up. If you press the "enter/return" key, both fields clear.

This is a minor usability issue, where new user tend to do the sequence: Username <tab> password <return> instead of Username <tab> password <tab> <return>

Is it possible for the dialog to accept return in the password field as a click on the "sign in" button?

I agree, the enter key handing in the login screen is broken.

also I can't login through google by hitting enter on the google icon, and when you hit enter when openid url is in focus you get kicked into password login form.

With the last version (0.6.82) it works with ie6, ie7, ie8, ff4 but not with the chrome.

Samuel, I could not reproduce the problem with Chrome, works fine for me.

I thought it appeared only when the askbot button was displayed but I cannot reproduce it anymore.

I've fixed the particular behaviours that you've mentioned, but there's room for more improvement in this area, e.g. support for cursor keys in the "matrix" of login methods and auto-focussing on fields that are filled out incorrectly.
