"event" is a pretty dangerous name to choose [1] : )

Browsers happen to do quite stupid things with named controls - e.g.
shadowing same-named global variables. In this case, IE's global
`event` (which actually references event object when event occurs) is
most likely shadowed with this input element. This means that `e' is
resolved to an element (rather than an event object) and so everything
sort of messes up.

Try to "namespace" those names - e.g. use something like "foo-uname",
"foo-password", etc. and see if the problem still exists.
