Hi all,

I'm trying to use both twill and BeautifulSoup. I downloaded the
latest BeautifulSoup (3.0.3) and have the following simple program:

from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup
from twill.commands import *
from twill.errors import *
from twill import *
from sys import *
follow( 'Log In' )

This raises a hard-to-decipher exception. Once I remove the
BeautifulSoup improt, everything's fine. Should this be filed as a
twill bug? Any workarounds in the meantime? Thanks in advance.
