I think this may have been something that I broke in mechanize to begin
with; in any case, I reverted to the behavior of the current mechanize
trunk source, and that fixed the problem.  Thanks for your diagnosis!

I fixed a number of other issues while I was debugging this, including
a problem with __url__ only getting updated at the time of the *next*

I also added an assertion command, 'url', that requires a regexp match
against the current URL to succeed...

-> PS. please allow non-subscribers to send mail to the list, the
->     current behaviour is frigging annoying.

OK, I changed it to 'hold'.  On my public lists, I've switched to
bouncing stuff from non-subscribers because of spam; if it becomes
a problem on this list, I'll figure something out.
