Comments error messages on Home page?

I created and authored a number of pages.  I then decided to edit the Page content type to add the "Comments" part.  So now every page has the ability to receive comments.  Great.

During testing I clicked on the Submit Comment button without filling in any fields.  It displayed nice error messages (name is required, comment is required, etc.) at the top of the page.

However, it did not display these error messages when I clicked Submit Comment on the Home page.  If I went to a different page afterwards, the error messages appeared on that page!

So, in other words, error messages display nicely on all pages, except for the Home page.  I'm using the Contoso theme.

Is this a theme glitch?  An Orchard glitch?  Have I done something wrong?

It sounds like an artefact of the slightly strange way the Home Page is implemented. This problem should disappear with Alias and Autoroute in the next version of Orchard.
