This appears to be something that should be fixed in mechanize, so 
forwarding to wwwsearch-general so it doesn't get lost.

Subject: [twill] Twill is not working as expected


I am trying to test Google OpenID Auth with twill, but getting an unexpected
URLError because of quotes in refresh url that google inserts in response's
header (Refresh: 0; url='http://www.google.com/...' , notice single quotes).
I don't know is it a google's bug or twill's feature :). I propose this
simple patch:

          self.selector = None
          self.unredirected_hdrs = {}
          self.visit = visit

Can anyone help me with not-so-dirty solution?
