Yeah, I totally missed that one.  It's actually a problem with any form contained in a "NamingContainer",
not just clay.  The clay component is a naming container so that explains the association.
  This  problem was introduced with the validator 1.3 upgrade.  The java script is now contained
in the commons validator jar.  The new  script use a utility function "jcv_retrieveFormName"
extracts the form name that is then used when forming the form specific javascript validation
We might be able to fix this one by creating our own flavor of the "jcv_retrieveFormName"
function that strips the ':' char  besides changes to the ValidatorScript control.
