    Looks like a bug to me -- I'll pass a possible fix along to TC.

    The problem is that when the Choice object is initialized, it expects
    at least one item in the choice list. This is clearly a Wrong Thing.

    There are two workarounds:

            1) Initialize your choice list with fl_addto_choice() or one
               if its ilk before you call fl_show_form(), or

            2) Clear the choice list with fl_clear_choice() before calling

    BTW: my logs show better than 20 downloads a day on the new FTP server
    <> since the switchover. It looks as
    if XForms is alive and well!

    I believe we are converging on a version 1.0 release Real Soon Now and
    that release will more than likely be Open Source for all you source
    lovers. :-)
