Try using the 'add_auth' command in twill, e.g.

	add_auth IdyllStuff http://www.idyll.org/ titus test

will put in username 'titus', password 'test', for any URL under
http://www.idyll.org/, in the authentication domain IdyllStuff.

Separately, I have noticed problems in the past with urllib's
interpretation of Web URLs like 'hostname:port/path/'.  You
may be running into that bug; I have, I believe, fixed it in twill.

Let me know if the add_auth stuff works.
