While it may be moot as your problem was solved by Henrique, the way 
checkboxes and radios work is that they automatically have a #process 
function which expands the checkboxes into multiple form widgets.

See: http://api.drupal.org/?q=api/function/expand_radios/head

You can do this (at least in D6):

   '#process' => array('mymodule_expand_radios'),

This will override the default #process and call your version of the 
function instead.
