See attached test case. When the focus is tabbed into an imagemap link, hitting spacebar will not scroll down the page. Moving focus on to a plain text link does work though. Start tabbing until focus is in the image map at the left. Then try to hit SPACE to scroll down the page. In comparison, get the focus on a plain text link and try to scroll down the page. In 9/27 builds, scrolling doesn't work when focus is on an image map link. [Note: only the first five image map links are enabled ('Autos', 'Browser Central', 'Business', 'Careers', 'Computing')).

Hmm, this is kind of morphing this bug, but in a trunk build from 9pm tonight on win2k, as soon as you tab into the image map, ALL key events cease to work. You can't tab forward or back out, or access the menus, or use any shortcuts (e.g. ctrl-L). You're completely stuck.
Severity: normal → major
This is also in the comm. build from Friday morning.
Summary: 'spacebar' does not scroll page when focus is on imagemap link → when focus is on imagemap link, no key events work
morphing this bug was wrong. Filed bug 115481 for the bigger problem and left this one to deal with the narrower case of the spacebar key action.
Depends on: 115481

Nominating for nsbeta1 triage.
Given that Netscape.com makes such prominent use of image maps on its main page (and other pages), and that page-down-on-space has worked since ... (not sure, 1.0 or 2.0), I don't think we can really treat this as "obscure".
This could be fixed as described in bug 915962 comment 5.
