I'm pretty sure my problem is also b); if I do not use twill to try
and manipulate the dropdowns (they have default values) then twill
itself works fine. Once the data passes through twill, yes, what
should be three values becomes just one value, in this case the
selected value of the last/third dropdown.

So yea, if you have that patch handy, I definitely wouldn't mind
taking a peek at it to see if it looks like it'd address my particular
issue. I haven't yet used darcs; when you say "the tests" I assume you
mean twill's own tests?
