It's always great when I can solve my own issues just seconds after posting
to the list. It's like murphy's law or something.

Anyway, I was saving only dictionaries to the session, but I was saving
form values as req.form['key'] which of course are StringField objects.
Apparently, with 3.3.1 you can't even pickle mod_python objects. The fix
was to use req.form['key'].value and all was well.

I swear I stared at this for hours and it only dawned on me what to try
after posting for help.
