validation show if message - resetting the session

Just a thought.

I have a server side validation to ensure a database entry is not duplicated.

On error, my validation show if message is displayed

If I subsequently close then re-open the insert page, the validation error is still displayed, even though the form has not been submitted, as the error is stored as a session value.

I can overcome this by setting the error session value to an empty string, within the 'validation show if' block, so that the message doesn't perpetuate.

Is it not a good idea to do this by default, so the error message does not perpetuate ?
