SOFTWARE VERSION: 0.11testing1
(Control Panel > General > About product)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: Perform initial configuration setup script.
EXPECTED OUTCOME: Enter initial root password with virtual keyboard. Confirm
password by typing password again with virtual keyboard.
ACTUAL OUTCOME: Initial password works correctly, but confirmation prompt does
not provide virtual keyboard. Pressing Cancel will advance the setup script,
to the hostname prompt, without error.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3)

I haven't tested what happens if two different passwords are typed.
I have no virtual keyboard on the n800 for the setup screens on 0.17testing4,
installed to MMC via the mer installer. I repeated the installation and
verified the problem. Installing 0.16 in the same manner did not have this
Canceling the username field does not allow one to proceed. There appears to be
no way to progress past this point.
