Thanks for getting the ball rolling.

BTW, you do not need to create a Session class instance in a PSP page
explicitly. It is enough to reference the 'session' variable and the underlying
PSP handler will create the Session class instance for you, it being
available through that same 'session' variable.

So, you should be able to delete:

  s = Session.Session(req)

and then instead of using 's', use 'session' instead.

By doing it this way you also avoid the need to have:


as the PSP handler will always save the session it creates when 'session'
variable reference triggers its creation.

You might like to give those changes a go and if it all works okay put up the
modified version.

Thanks again.
