[twill] Twill form parsing error depending on br tag formatting (missing form fields)

Hello again --
Given the following HTML:
  <form name="login" method="post" action="test.cgi">
This works:<br />   <input name="username_ok" type="text" />
This does not:<br/>   <input name="username_whereami" type="text" />

twill finds the first input field but misses the second one. This appears to be because the BR tag is immediately closed rather than with an intermediate space (i.e. <br/> instead of <br />).
I believe this is legal HTML as well as XML. Any suggestions?
