Sorry 'bout that -- I've been trying to figure out how to deal with
global forms, and in doing so I screwed up the form display.  You
actually ran into two distinct problems ('showforms' was displaying the
incorrect numbering, and 'browser.get_form()' was subtracting one from
the form number).  I've fixed both problems now, and you can grab this
version of twill at


thanks for pointing out the problem!
