DAP violation Provide descriptive text in label elements

I am using FF10 and Dojo 1.6.1. I ran Dynamic Assessment Plugin on a page and got the violation Provide descriptive text in label elements. In the label element, I have a container which includes a text box. Is this a false violation due to Dojo 1.6.1?

It's likely either a bug in your page, or something that was fixed in Dojo 1.8, but impossible to tell since you haven't attached a test case or given any instructions on how to reproduce the problem.

If it still happens in Dojo 1.8 then you'll need to give instructions on how to reproduce the problem, including attaching a test case or referencing an existing (public) test case.

I have never heard of putting a text box inside of a label. Try to remove the textbox and put just text in the label and see if there is a problem. Alternatively you could try using the "aria-label" attribute on the form (instead of using a <label> at all). If you want to keep the text box, maybe you could put an "aria-label" on the textbox object. I don't think this can be a bug in Dojo because we don't create any labels containing textboxes (or anything other than text.)
