I the initial report with Analysis Designer, and then used that Launch Page Parameter Extractor tool to grab the above code snippet. I did remove my dimension specific -SETs, so it will work as a user-tweakable gadget.
I setup my gadget screen like so:
Display fields: everything is set to Not Used Groupings: User Specified Dimension Required Filters: Measures Required, Time Required (Current Period default)
When I have the current period as the time filter, I am at the most granular level for time. The only drill-down option I have on the gadget is on my other dimension, which works well. As soon as I change the period to use a larger time range, I am offered the option to drill on my three levels of Time and the other dimension. The problem is that if I drill on Year, my report throws an error. The other two Time levels work well on drill-down. Here is the pmf error:
Error S02_B in pmf_rpt_tmplt_meas_crstab, FOCERRNUM: 9 LINES: 0
Viewing the source tells me this, which is likely the source of the error:
0 ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 91 IN PROCEDURE pmf_rpt_tmplt_meas (FOC003) THE FIELDNAME IS NOT RECOGNIZED: DEF_TLVL0101
Pretty strange, eh?
Please give me a hand if you can.

You definitely don't want to override TIME to 0 since you're planning to use a Time Range.
Secondly, you should require a Time grouping on the gadget; otherwise selecting a wider Time Range than Current or any single point will give you incorrect cross-time aggregation on the data. You will of course get extra width required since the Time breakout, even on a single Time point, will always thus be there. But it gives you a second level of Dimensional drill, which some people will like...
Lastly, and hope this doesn't break your heart, but I could not repro your issue in 5.1.2. Which means we probably cleaned up some glitch up between the releases - they're separated by 4 months of solid bug fixing and development, so it's quite possible we fixed something that I for one can't recall. Anyway, try it in 5.1.2... hate to always push people to upgrade. Anyway, there are plenty of neat new capabilities in V5.1.2. that you'll like.
