When I'm debugging forms to understand the structures I use something like
drupal_set_message('<pre>' . print_r($form_values, TRUE) . '</pre>')
so I can see the contents of the arguments in the callback functions.
The first argument of form_set_error should match the form element name
being flagged with an error and is used in the form validate function.
You might be able to rewrite the form_set_error as ``form_set_error('',
'error message')'' depending on what you need. Also, take the deadwood
comments with a grain of salt because the comment could be a false
positive based on regular expressions. Deadwood only gives a starting
point, it doesn't do the whole job.
Make a Drupal difference and review core patches.
