The snippet I provided is from my test suite. I'll be first to admit that it isn't great as I've only just started hacking away with Mechanize (and wondered why I didn't start sooner ;P).
Anyway, from a testing perspective is it not better to follow the expected url and not the url in the template? Its only a minor point but are you not then reporting on a mistaken redirect but continuing as normal otherwise? I feel this is better but would welcome your comments.
I do like the delay bit but, for my testing purposes, I would also pass that into the function. Something like:
meta_refresh($mech, '/index.cgi?rm=home', 5);
Or whatever :). I would also then, personally, have a default delay (of some time determined by the particular project) and simply validate the delay as being correct (for the same reasons as with the URL).
Its funny, I only wrote this function because IIS, at the time, couldn't handle HTTP redirects and would crash (no really). Its *fixed now* but I don't have the time to rework my app again :).
