The bug I brought up
--- can't enter login name and password in the input areas ---
was fixed.  This helps my purpose, so I'm closing this bug.

What is my purpose is to update the cookies for a site.  After
that I can retrieve some data from the site (that requires login)
by using the functions `url-retrieve', etc.  To verify that the
cookie is updated, eval (url-cookie-write-file) and see the file
~/.emacs.d/url/cookies .

But this closing doesn't mean that eww is enabled to be used for
logging in to a web site.  Eww should visit `my page' after the
login session, like Firefox and so on does.
