Some sites remove focus completely and the user must click back into the forms. Others put focus on the incorrect form. While others blow away any information entered and set focus on the username form. 

Read through the following examples and insert your expectation (mine are at the bottom):

Scenario 1: Bad password entered

Really, You Should All Just Shut Up

and read

Designing for People by Henry Dreyfuss.

And relish at how it was pretty much all figured out about 50 years ago
(well, written about then... I'm sure he was practicing as such long
before then). Process, terminology, skills, etc. etc.

I've been (slowly) writing my thoughts on it on my site

Use of "Your" or "My" in Personalized Web Application Design

Howdy ya'll,

So does anyone have strong feelings--or better yet, research--about
whether its better to use "Your" or "My" to describe personalized
stuff in web application design? I'm working with a client who has
made extensive use of "Your" and I have this gut sense that "My" would
be better... more personal, more of a dialog between company and user,
more common and familiar...
