[twill] Does Twill not like Plone?

-> I tried to use Twill with plone, which uses a field called "__ac_name" in the 
-> login form. Twill keeps failing on this name, and is unable to login to a Plone 
-> site whereas it works with other sites.
->  >> go http://www.plone.org
->  >> fv loginform __ac_name suresh
-> Is this a bug?

Names beginning with __ are considered special & are interpreted
as variable names.  I just put in a patch that leaves them alone
if the variable doesn't actually exist in any namespace; this should
fix the problem.


Thanks for reporting it, and let me know how it goes!
