Can't get login_script to work

I am currently working on a task that requires me to perform security scan of a website and to do that I am attempting to perform an authenticated scan of the website using a login_script with arachni. However, after much trial and error I have been unsuccessful. The login script and debug log are attached.

If you follow the sequence in a web browser and inspect the elements in question, it appears that arachni does not see the acknowledgement frame that appears when you click the "Sign In" link. Please let me know what I am missing to get arachni to work as expected.

It appears that the HTML returned by browser.html is different from what you would see if you inspected the elements in question in a real browser.

I know this is vague, but I do not want to put any more detail in my question until this is marked as private.
