I saw that someone else had this problem, but didn't see any responses so 
i don't know if anyone knows what is going on, but I figured I would ask. 

The following is the traceback.
When you point the browser to Login.py/loadPage:

def loadPage(req, retry=False):
    # check if new session
    sess = Session.Session(req, secret=SECRET_CODE)
    #load a template
    template = psp.PSP(req, filename="LoginPage.tmpl")
    #load dynamic variables from the database into template to
    if retry == True:
        pageData['TextField'] = LOGIN_RETRY_MESSAGE
    # if Retry - notify user of failed login attempt
    #create HTML page
You get the following error....
I can't really track it down because the session code is all wrapped up 
with the apache code, so I can't do unit testing or anything. 
Has anyone else seen a problem like this?
