SimpleFormController. HTML action left blank. Spring creates action under WEB-INF

I posted this at springsource.org but didn't get any replies. Wonder if anyone has witnessed this before?
Spring is generating an HTML form action attribute under WEB-INF. This leads to a 404 when submit it pressed. Here's a bit of background into my very small app:
I have a controller to handle login. It extends SimpleFormController:
Also have a "standard" view resolver:
Here's my login form from the JSP page (note the action is not specified):
I'm developing this application on 3 different computers (depending on where I am location-wise). On 2 of the computers, when the form is presented in the browser and I look at the HTML source, the HTML form tag's action attribute is "/test/agentLogin.htm". This is as I would expect.
On the 3rd computer, I get the following: "/test/WEB-INF/jsp/agentLogin.jsp". This then leads to a HTTP 404 error when submit is pressed.
If I hardcode the action attribute in the JSP to "/test/agentLogin.htm" all's fine.
Am I being sloppy in missing out the action attribute? This page says it's not required.
Could this be a bug in Spring showing itself under certain circumstances?
