It seems as if I have run into two separate webrat problems.  One is
reported as ticket 28 and is fixed by the patch submitted by ticket 29. 
This involves not having the input field tags nested within the associated
label tags.  However, even with this cured the locator still returns a nil
object for the select, whether searched for by label or by name, causing a
failure so there is still a problem with webrat.  Does anyone have any
workarounds that they can suggest?
