-> happening:
-> $ twill-sh
->  -= Welcome to twill! =-
-> current page:  *empty page*
-> >> go http://www.sabi.ufrgs.br/
-> ERROR: invalid literal for int(): refresh
-> current page:  *empty page*
-> and if I try:
-> >> go http://slashdot.org/
-> ==> at http://slashdot.org/
-> current page: http://slashdot.org/
-> so my twill-0.8.4a9 is working, but not to this site... is there any way
-> to use twill on it, or is this a bug?

hi, Leonardo,

you've run into a bug somewhere -- but the short term problem is
actually that the way twill handles HTTP-EQUIV REFRESH headers is
not great.  I'll put in a patch tonight and see if I can track down
the deeper bug, too.

(To see what I mean about the bug, try

	debug equiv-refresh 1

before the 'go')
