I made a stupid mistake. I looked at the script made by the tester and
once I expanded the partial field name to the full field name, the
script completes successfully.
However, that does bring up a related issue: Is there a way to get
showforms to display the full field name instead of just the first 20
characters? Below is an example, take a look at #4, and 5, note the
partial name and ellipsis. If we can get the full field names then we
can stay in python/twill the whole time instead of having to use the
web developer extension on firefox to grab form details.
Form name=normal (#3)
