[twill] Twill Scripting Limitations?

We need to perform a number of synthetic transactions.  

don't know if I just fail at using Twill or what but I'm having a great
deal of difficulty with the first two pages I'm trying to create
scripts for.
 Example 1:
pops up a disclaimer when first visited in a browser.  Hit OK to force
disclaimer to go away.  There is a userID field, password field and
domain selection field with a dropdown of 10 or so domains.  There is a
single submission button on the page.
 Script looks like this:
 go www.blah.com
fv 3 in_tx_username whoamI
fv 3 in_pw_userpass idunno!
fv 3 in_domain DOMAIN
submitting, another showforms shows you the same forms and you have not
been forwarded to the "home page" as you would have been forwarded to
if you'd used a browser.  If you try to go www.blah.com/homepage - it
says that you're there but a showforms reveals the same forms on the
initial www.blah.com page, which are not correct, meaning you haven't
actually authenticated successfully.
 Example 2:
synthetic transaction against a Sharepoint page.  Upon trying to visit
the webpage in a browser, you're presented with a Window'd login box. 
Is there any way for twill to actually respond to that?  Trying to
visit the webpage via twill results in a timeout. Perhaps this is where
the authentication realms come into play but I've not been able to
succeed in using them.
The New Busy think 9 to 5 is a cute idea. Combine multiple calendars with Hotmail.
