In building a payment processor for Virtuemart 1.1, I found that when payment processor fails, the request parameter 'checkout_next_step' is set to CHECK_OUT_GET_PAYMENT_METHOD. However, this code doesn't seem to work. Instead of going back to the get payment method step (where shopper can correct their credit card info), the final confirmation page is displayed.

Not sure whether this is a bug or intentional. Searching through the class file and html file, I cannot find another reference to this request parameter 'checkout_next_step'. Probably this is some obsolete code not being corrected. Can someone clarify this?
