OK, I understand now. From my own personal experience, I know that a 
site-wide error handler can't read session variables (which really 
sucks) - my guess is that this is also true for cookies. When I was 
looking into the problem, I found this page:
Which states that: "The request's CGI, FORM, and URL variables are 
available to help your template diagnose the failing request."

If you can't make this work with cookies, maybe you could use a database 
table to track when a user has submitted this form.
