cfgrid not functioning after recent security fixes

I cannot get my cfgrid to pass data along to the submit pages when using firefox or chrome and I can't get the grid to show up at all in IE8.  This all seems to have started after installing all the security patches earlier this month.  The test page I am using looks like this. I am running ColdFusion 9 and IIS7.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<cfform name="form" method="post" action="gridsubmit.cfm">

<cfgrid name="adddata"
   <cfgridcolumn header="number" name="pnum">
   <cfgridcolumn header="amount" name="pamt">
          <cfinput type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

 and I get nothing on my submit page which is just a cfdump

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>

  <cfdump var="#Form#">

Check if you have multiple cfide directories (which is where the JS for cfgrid resides).  If you do it's possible that the patch updated the wrong one.

YOu also might try format="html" just to see if it makes any difference

It was in fact the default scriptssrc directory.  After you look at this stuff for so long you sometimes miss the obvious.
