I can across the same thing yesterday.

The explantion:
  SQL methods are much more stupid than DTML methods!
  If used in the way you do it, SQL methods look only
  in the REQUEST object and not in the namespace.

  This means (if called from a WEB request, i.e. REQUEST is defined):
    <dtml-call new_scheme> is equivalent to <dtml-call "new_scheme(REQUEST)">.
  Your <dtml-in>, however, has placed the fields into the
  namespace "_" and not in the REQUEST object.

  You cannot use <dtml-call "new_scheme(_)"> either, because
  SQL methods require a "get" method from their first parameter
  ("_" does not have it).

For the moment, you have to use on of these ways:

  1.  <dtml-call "new_scheme(new_product=new_product, scheme=scheme)">
  2.  <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('new_product',new_product)">
      <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('scheme',scheme)">
      <dtml-call new_scheme>

I prefered 1. in my solution.
