Minimal demo of issue

This attachment is a minimal demo of the issue.

I found out that it only happens if the "role" attribute is set as well. In
this case, the "role" attribute is set to "textbox". If I read
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/wai-aria.html#wai-aria and the table given under
" Strong Native Semantics" correctly, this should be allowed (or even
the implicit default). However, I'm not a native speaker and may be incorrect.

I tested another role value ("status") as well, same error message given.
Obviously, "status" doesn't make much sense in this case, I just wanted to see
if this error message is epxlicitly bound to "textbox".
