I've found the problem with this here, and should have it fixed in the next snapshot.

FYI, we've not begun doing translations for 9 yet, so things may still not be fully translated :)

I can check into this, but I think the default is to use "tab" for jumping between the fields
in a QT app. (That's worked here in the past anyway)

I prefer that we not highlight "YES" since this is the point of no return when doing
an install, and I would hate for it to blow away a users system because they hit enter
a few to many times :)

I see the problem here, looking into a fix now

Thats a known issue. Its on my list still to put some work into how meta-pkgs get installed
/ reporting that status to the various GUIs. I think something like you are suggesting is
what I'll end up doing here soon :)
