comment web.config Entries not Being Removed During Feature Deactivation
@rjcup - Please excuse my tardy reply. I've been on a month-long holiday. I can add web.config entries OK but cannot remove them from the web.config. Like you, I can see they're being removed (in the debugger) but the web.config file doesn't update. I'm not too fond of my workarounds either.

comment I'm trying to understang how AJAX and Sharepoint play together
I don't understand what you mean when you ask if AJAX can live on a separate web server to SharePoint. AJAX is a client-side mechanism that enables updates to the data on the page without having to go through a full page lifecycle rather than a server technology. If by this statement you mean the service it talks to, that's going to depend on whether your data exists inside SharePoint or not. If so, you're going to have to be communicating with SharePoint services.

comment Force on-demand DVWP async refresh
And here was I thinking I was on my way to another Tumbleweed! I'm thinking this is pretty much what I'm going to have to do. I don't think I can update a dataview from JavaScript at all. It wouldn't be a hack - I'd be using the JavaScript Client OM to refresh a custom UI component. I was thinking that seeing as I'd already done the work on the DataView, I might be able to retrofit an update from the client. Cheers.

comment Redirect On Finish Button On WSS Survey
I had almost exactly this problem on a WSS 3 survey a while ago on a 1 page survey. Initially I tried to fill in the RedirectUrl property on the Finish and Cancel buttons on the NewForm.aspx but it didn't work correctly - I can't remember what happened though. In the URL, inserting Source=ABC into the querystring works OK. The downside of this approach is that you can't set a separate URL for the Submit and Cancel buttons.
