There seems nothing wrong on our side, the Barcode Keyboard just does not provide a proper flag in the KeyDown event, which would allow us to recognize the Next action.
Taking into account that is not a very popular VKB, with medium rating on the Android Market (3.7), I'd suggest the WONTFIX resolution for this bug.
what flag is it not providing?
also, does the stock browser have the same issue with this keyboard?

http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/inputmethod/EditorInfo.html#IME_ACTION_NEXT
=======================
public static final int FLAG_EDITOR_ACTION
Since: API Level 3

This mask is used for compatibility, to identify enter keys that are coming from an IME whose enter key has been auto-labelled "next" or "done". This allows TextView to dispatch these as normal enter keys for old applications, but still do the appropriate action when receiving them.

The stock browser does not support Next action at all for any keyboard.
this is an issue with the keyboard. I don't think it is in our interest to do anything to work around their bug.
