[jboss-user] [JBoss Seam] - Form submission problems using s:decorate

I'm attempting to convert our forms using IceFaces, Seam (2.0), and some core JSF elements to use what seems to be the best way to go - <s:decorate>.

I've taken a form that was otherwise working and converted the form to use <s:decorate template="/layout/forms/edit.xhtml">.

"edit.xhtml" is your standard usage of <s:decorate> which I have seen again and again in Seam docs, forum posts, and blogs.

I can confirm that the form is validating correctly as the validation messages (using <s:message>) appear appropriately.  However, my issue is that when there are no validation issues - the page simply will not "submit".  I've checked pages.xml and the "submit" button; remember, this form worked prior to using <s:decorate>.

I am hoping someone here may use an eye ball or two and look at my problem.

Here is a code snippet:

The Form:
<ice:form id="modifyPersonalProfileForm">
  | <s:validateAll>
  | <s:decorate id="designatorDecoreate" template="/layout/forms/edit.xhtml">
  | <ui:define name="label">First Name:</ui:define>
  | <ice:inputText id="firstName"  required="true" value="#{cvUser.firstName}" size="40"></ice:inputText>
  | </s:decorate>
  | ....
  | <ice:commandLink value="Cancel" action="#{userProfileManager.cancelUserProfile}" />

The "edit.xhtml":
  | 		<tr>
  | 		<td>
  | 			<s:label styleClass="label #{invalid?'errors':''}">
  | 				<ui:insert name="label"/>
  | 				<s:span styleClass="required" rendered="#{required}">*</s:span>
  | 			</s:label>
  | 		</td>
  | 		<td>
  | 			<span class="input #{invalid?'errors':''}">
  | 				<!--  <h:graphicImage value="/themes/englink-earth-final/img/error.gif" rendered="#{invalid}"/> -->
  | 						<ui:insert/>
  | 			</span>
  | 			<small class="small #{invalid?'errors':''}">
  | 				<s:message styleClass="error errors"/>
  | 			</small>
  | 		</td>
  | 		</tr>
  | 	</table>

P.S. I tried to post this message on the new forums, but as soon as I copied/pasted some actual JSF code, the program crashed and I received a JBoss "internal 500" page error.
