You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. Enable virtual keyboard in Setting -> Text input.
2. Make sure the slider keyboard is withdrawn.
3. Start Maps.
4. Tap the magnifying glass icon to search.
5. Tap the input field.
Virtual keyboard appears so one can enter search terms.
Most of the time. If I tap the input field multiple times in quick succession
the VKB sometimes comes up, pre-filled with the string "Start typing to
search..." which has to be erased manually.
confirmed on 41-11 too
And 2.2009.51-1, except that if/when it eventually does appear it is not

This works fine in the latest internal builds that will become the next public
release ("PR1.2"). It takes a second though which confused me at first.
A future public update will include the fix.
To answer popular followup questions:
* Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance.
* There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions.
A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
