input[type="time"] fields cause bbUI applications to freeze #754

When a user applies focus to an input[type="time"] element, the bbUI application will freeze. Tested with v0.9.6 and BlackBerry 10 OS

<input type="time" id="txtTime" value="" />

However, the same behavior does NOT occur for input[type="datetime"] and input[type="datetime-local"] elements.

Note - this freezing behavior does not occur in WebWorks applications that do not use bbUI.js. Confirmed by testing the following example:

        Time: <input type="time" id="txtTime" value=""/>

Weird.. I'm not doing anything special with the time input than any other input on focus


I also had issues with the time input... Sometimes when I moved the hour the minutes where also moving. Also, the element doesn't react to click event triggered from the app. I needed this because I didn't actually need an input, but rather just to trigger the dialog and and then read the selected time from the hidden input. It would be nice that all "enhanced" inputs to react at internal click event to show the associated dialog.

Wanted to follow up and say after updating to the most recent version of bbUI* this problem went away.

There must have been some black voodoo magic in the old bbUI that was exposing a Webkit bug.

Pro: problem doesn't exist now.
Con: it could come back until we understand what WebKit is unhappy about.
