the softkb on the n900 covers the whole screen and doesn't allow for awesomebar matching or even entering a URL.  The only option is to use the hard keyboard.
For better or worse, this is likely the only way it works

that might be a new reality.  I just wish we could use it to enter a URL.
This works for the maemo browser and all of their applications, it should work on ours. What's the reason it can't work on our browser, Mark?

it does enter in a url on the n900 when you are visiting it from a website.  it however does not respond to softKB when you are entering an URL from the awesomebar pane.  

Repro:
1) visit awesomebar pane
2) click the awesomebar
3) Verify softKB doesnt open up.

Tested on 20100510 nightly build on n900
