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!
