Hi Titus --

I'm probably being obtuse here but I still don't see the connection.
Maybe this is a terminology issue? I thought I was using "twill latest"
given the following on the twill web-page:

"The latest release of twill is twill 0.8.5, released Monday, June 5th,

Is there another version of "twill latest" I should use instead?

Uninstall mechanize ;).  Or upgrade to the latest version of twill.

The problem is caused by a mismatch between the version of mechanize
that twill expects (which is included with twill) and the version of
mechanize that twill gets when it does an 'import'.  The versions are
seriously mismatched for twill-0.8.6 and mechanize latest, but twill
latest expects the latest version of mechanize.

I realize this is an insane situation and I will try to figure out how
to deal with it ;)
