I suspect the problem comes from a "POST" operation.
You will not see POST operation parameters in the web server log
files.

It is highly unlikely that a missing RESPONSE causes the problem.
Such an error would be handled at a different place (I think
in "mapply").

At line 444 of "ZPublisher/HTTPRequest.py", you will see the following
code:
                    if flags&CONVERTED:
                        try:
                            item=converter(item)
                        except:
                            if (not item and not (flags&DEFAULT) and
                                defaults.has_key(key)):
                                item = defaults[key]
                                if flags&RECORD:
                                    item=getattr(item,attr)
                                if flags&RECORDS:
                                    item.reverse()
                                    item = item[0]
                                    item=getattr(item,attr)
                            else:
                                raise                            

Add "print key; sys.stdout.flush()" before the final "raise".
This will print the corresponding "key" (with is missing).

To get more information: the variable "fslist" contains all
parameters. It is a list of objects. Each object has a "name"
attribute (which gives the form variable name or 'key'),
the object either has a "file" or "value" attribute.
You may look at line 370, to see how it is processed.

You can test your debugging code in your test environment.
Simply create a form with a "xxx:required" variable name
and do not provide a value.
