Right now this is only on a "localhost" server that is not accessible to the world. I am making some progess on the weird persistance of the data. The EntryForm submits to the "ChooseTest" shopping cart which redirects back to the EntryForm in case of validation errors. A session is being used to save the data, and simply cloning EnryForm and giving it a new name does nothing to break it off from the session that was saved.
I'm digging at this and working out how the redirects interact with the data.
The odd fact that the State menu persists when there is a redirection to the Entry Form and that the ShowDate menu does not persist is probably another issue.
