Google Buzzes - minor bug

Recently, I was posting a link on Google Buzz and I noticed one interesting thing that “Add Link” button gets activated with any key event. Normally the buttons of such nature gets activated when user enters any character / text / number in the respective text box but this button in Google Buzz is somewhat different OR I should say a bit deviated from the generally expected / implemented functionality. Here are the steps to reproduce this observation –

Browser – Mozilla Firefox
- Navigate to Google Buzz
- Click on the text area
- Click on LINK hyper link to insert a link / web URL
- Click inside the text box and then press WINDOWS / CTRL + c / CTRL + v / Any other CTRL key combination / Any ALT key combination like ALT + f

Actual Result – The ADD LINK Button gets activated
