Camino doesn't auto-fill a previously stored username or password from the
Keychain until the page is completely loaded. For sites that rely on external
image hosts, or with the vagaries of Internet routing, this can sometimes
(often?) be a problem, as the auto-fill will take a VERY long time to occur, if
at all.

This is a far bigger problem on dialup than on broadband, as dialup users will
see substantial load times more often than broadband users will.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a site whose login data has been previously stored in the Keychain.
2. Watch the username/password fields fill in AFTER the page loads.

Actual Results:  
User/pass filled in after pageload finished.

Expected Results:  
User/pass should fill in ASAP (without delaying rendering, if possible).

this is how we hook into gecko, there's no way around it short of re-scanning
the DOM every set amount of time, which would suck and slow down pageload.

Fair 'nuff. Not being on dialup (at the moment) I don't really care a whole lot ;)

I'll e-mail you with a slightly different idea that may work around the
multiple-DOM-scans problem.
