Re: onboard not typing password in admin modal dialog box (dapper)
It is possible to change this in both dapper and edgy, but you have to change a gconf key.
To do that you must first enable the menu choice for the gnome configuration editor. In that search for gksu and tick the disable-grab box.
We have a patch for Edgy that should let you do this with a check box from System -> Preferences -> AT-prefs
I agree that the on-screen keyboard should work everywhere. KDE and the login screen are our next targets.
