auto_p and forms

auto_p will errantly injects paragraph and linebreak tags in certain circumstances within forms:

<label for="select_element">This is a select box placed <select name="select_element"><option value="1">inline</option</select> with the label.</label>


<label for="select_element">This is a select box that is pla­ced<br />
<select name="select_element"><option value="1">inline</option><option value="2">inside</option><option value="3">within</option></select>

<p>inline with the label.</label>

linebreak and paragraph tags should never be inserted inside a label. In this case they are not even properly paired. It would be nice if the surrounding div was identified and no tags were inserted, although if a paragraph tag wrapped the whole thing, it would not be the end of the world.

The resulting code was clearly mis-typed. It should have been:

`<div> <label for="select_element">This is a select box that is pla­ced<br /> <select name="select_element"><option value="1">inline</option></select>

<p>inline with the label.</label> </div>`
