On getting to experiment, it seems only input type=text seems to do this. Datepicker, tokens, dropdowns, textarea (naturally), checkboxes etc. don't exhibit this behavior. Seems consistent in Chrome 59 and IE 11. We've lots of users that stand to have improved understanding of just how to use a web browser in general (tab to advance field, searching in-page, opening new tabs... just logging in is a not a trivial endeavor).
It's only an inconvenience, but is perceived as an annoyance in what is otherwise the best operator input system we have. I've occasionally found myself quickly hitting enter while not meaning to, causing a form submission. Thing is, I enjoy the benefit of understanding the problem is ME.
