Button Flickers When Pressing Space on Input Elements

When the button() is applied to input elements, the background flickers when the space bar is pressed (The ui-state-active class is added and removed when the space bar is pressed). It would be great if it would stay in a consistent state while the user is typing. I've tested this in Chrome and Firefox. Here's a button to play with:

Why would you even turn a text input into a button?

I thought this was a standard use case for the button. I'm using button for just about all my form components: anchors (a), input, textarea, and of coarse buttons. The reason is simplicity. I add a button class to each component, call $(".button").button(), and call it a day :).

That doesn't make any sense. Text fields aren't buttons.

Applying the button function to input and textarea elements achieves a consistent look for the entire form.
