#1799 Password field does not get focus on login.php


Without RegisterGlobals, going to login.php?
loginname=my@email.com will result in a login screen
with the username field filled, but the focus still at the
username field instead of the password field.

Simple fix (login.php, line 95) change:
if (textElements == " . (isset($loginname) ? 2 : 1) . ")


if (textElements == " . (isset($_GET['loginname']) ? 2 :
1) . ") {\n".

Problem appears in all versions.

    I shall take a look at this. There is a possibility we
    might want to allow the values to come from a POST as well.
    There is a line of code about 10-15 lines below the one you
    corrected, but it appears after a plugin hook, and some
    plugins might be affecting it, so I want to do a quick check
    before I move the line up.
