i just upgraded to a new version, but got the following error when i try
to check a checkbox which is executed from a python script, and i get
the following traceback:

Form #2
## __Name__________________ __Type___ __ID________ __Value__________________
   ids:list                 checkbox  (None)       [] of ['bookings', 'class', 'module1 ...

    raise ItemNotFoundError(msg)
ClientForm.ItemNotFoundError: id=None name='True' label=None

but the same code works on 0.8.3 without any problems

here is my python

link = b.find_link(compile('module_test/;browse_thumbnails'))
if link:
    if link.url == 'module_test/;browse_thumbnails':
        fv('2', 'ids:list', "module_test")
        com('[info]  Old module_test removed')

any idea as to why.
