Are you trying to go to the second field by hitting a return? There's a
control at the end of the line that clears the field when you hit it.
That's what is causing the problem. Use the down arrow followed by the
left arrow or just keep hitting tab until you're in the right field.

This brings up something I've been wondering about. Why is that line
clearing control there?
