Thanks Cliff :)

I actually figured out what the issue was...  i was getting my request
args at the __init__ of the page.  I had intended to pull the arg out
of the request when the page was built, then use it later.  i hadn't
considered that form.Form reruns __init__ on submit, which meant that
by the time i wanted the arg to be processed, it "was no more" in the
request.  i just set up the page to process the request args as the
page is drawn the first time, rather than wait for a submit button to
be pressed.

thanks for the suggestion though, i'll keep it in mind if I end up
needing to process a request that way!
