Is it possible you are using an image as your submit button? The result of
clicking such an image is the x and y coordinates of the mouse pointer in
the submit image. If you have something like <INPUT TYPE="IMAGE"
src="image.gif"> without a NAME attribute for the INPUT tag, the
coordinate values for the x and y positions will be named x and y; if
however the INPUT tag has a NAME attribute assigned, the output will be
name.x and name.y
