okay, I see the problem.

I've come across this in the past, when a form is shown to the user
again to correct invalid values.
I 'fixed' it with the hack...
$element->value( $result->params->{$_} ) if $result->valid( $_ );

I tried changing Widget.pm so that valid values are passed on to all
elements in result(), but as expected, this caused a lot of failed
I suspect that all the failed tests were cases where the HTML is
compared, rather than using methods to test for expected values - so
it's impossible to say whether someone's relying on the current
(Which is why testing the HTML output sucks)

I agree that the current behaviour is b0rken, though.
Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
