They're not random, but they aren't generated by a URL.  There is state
information stored in a database that has nothing to do with the user and is

My impression of the way the CSV config element works is that it loads one
line per thread.  Is this incorrect?  I've been assuming this because of the
way it works for storing login information (one line per user, each thread
gets a seperate user).  How can I control how it reads the file so I can get
the next line when it's time to go to the next problem?

Well, I've heard bad things about BeanShell, so I've avoided trying to learn
it.  Maybe I'll give it a try.  I have significant java experience (I've
helped develop the app I'm testing, among other things), so if I can't solve
this some other way, maybe I'll dive into the jmeter source.  Would anyone
else be interested in an upgraded CSV config element? ;)  Thanks for your
help so far.
