Revenge of the Dragon, pt II

Couple more little glitches as the app has continued to be tested:
I mistyped 'reqeustTimeout' [sic] in a CFSETTING tag.  BD didn't
complain, and I didn't catch it, because the extra time for the request
never happened to be needed, but CF threw a syntax error immediately.
BD 6.2 puts the CFFILE result struct from uploads into local variable

Fusebox 4.1 Lexicons

I was the presenter at the Portland, OR CFUG last week, and the

    default="#getChildList(" />
  … do some stuff …

Now you'd hope that CF wouldn't actually execute the getChildList

code, you might expect it to anyway.  Fortunately, [...]
