    In IE8 a basic login page using the ASP:Login control will ask the user if they would like IE to rememeber their password.  If the RadWindowManager is included on that same login page IE8 will not show that prompt.  Also, if IE is already storing a password and I include a RadWindowManager IE will not autocomplete the password field.  However, IE will return to behaving normally if the RadWindowManager control is commented out or removed. 

    The markup below can be used to reproduce the issue:

    <%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="SandboxWebApp._Default" %> 
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> 
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %> 
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > 
    <head runat="server"
        <form id="form1" runat="server"
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" /> 
        <%--<telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" />--%> 
          <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server"
          <asp:LoginStatus ID="LoginStatus1" runat="server" />

    Hello Jeremy,

    This problem was reported some time ago by another customer of ours and the only workaround was not to use RadWindowManager, but RadWindows as standalone controls. The reason for the problem was found by the same customer who sent us some feedback several days after that:

    After exhaustive research we have found that in Internet Explorer, if a form has more than 2 input elements the remember password feature will absolutely not work.

    Sincerely yours,
