I've been able to confirm that, but *only when posting not logged in*.
Which of course is what casual bug reporters need to do :(

I'm fairly sure the issue is with one of the spam-filtering strategies
Trac uses, but I'm not sure which is the culprit, will try to
investigate without opening the um.. floodgates.

BTW the captcha doesn't show up (at least in IE) because it's a
non-secure item in an otherwise secure page. I suspect this is an issue
with Trac itself? Maybe we need to upgrade the Trac install, but I have
no idea how to go about that. I might experiment switching it to a
different captcha.
