[twill] internet banking log in problem

Hello, good Sirs.

I have been looking for a way to automate some of my online banking
transactions using python and came across twill.
But I am having trouble getting even past the login step at my online
banking portal:

go http://www.landsbanki.is
follow english
follow personalintenetbanking
fv 1 user spongebob
fv 1 pwd squarepants
fv 1 otpId1 0123456

Now, here I would expect to get a page telling me that login failed.
Instead, I just get a 200 code and am still at the same page.
using TestGen4Web it appears I am doing things correctly (TestGen4Web
doesn't log anything if I press Enter at the log in form, but if I press the
submit button, it logs it properly.)

Am I doing something incorrectly?  Should I be using something other than
twill, perhaps?  I started using firebug for mozilla and enabling http
debugging in twill but realized that I am too much of a http newbie to
analyze the problem so I decided to turn to this list.
