The code was designed this way on purpose. I, for one, certainly don't
want submit buttons automatically activated. You may not be able to
tell from the link name that it is a submit button. Only when you get
to it will this be obvious from the status line (in Advanced mode). I
am not sure that an extra press of enter is so much trouble to prevent
unwanted submissions.
