Aha!  Now I see what your issue is.   Before, I thought your hidden
component was enclosed in a <h:column>, and I couldn't understand why
you needed to change the row index.    If you're only working within a
row, then by doing this, you'd avoid having to mess around with
setting the row index.

Obviously, if you're validating across rows, then you'll need to do it
as you stated above.
