[Webtest] having problem with clickButton

But this really smacks of a bug or a bad install or something.

everything else works well, and I was considering using webtest for qa on my 
project except for this.

It seems I can locate the button by any means I want to - so long as there 
is no name attribute in the tag. I suppose there is a chance that it doesn't 
like the exact name I am using - but that would be very pathological.

And yes, the button is in the one and only form on the page.
