     I have 


in the system.  And I'm running this directly off the system the lsts
are on.  So there are no URL redirects.  

     If the python2 I'm using is any good then at least I think I know
what it isn't.  Hopefully.  

     Thank you.  Any other ideas?

     I'm desperate enough that I'm tracking code.  If you're familiar
with it at all, the process_form fuction never gets called.  If I'm
reading the code right, admindb thinks my form submission isn't a form
submission.  Very strange.  I'm running the apache-1.3.27-3 rpm also.
