Yes, drupal_execute() submits a form. it does not render the form. The
idea there is that it happens completely independently.
To do what you want to do, you are going to need to cache the values
from your first form somewhere (possibly via values on the confirm form)
and do your work in the confirm form submit.
In addition, you have the problem that there is no communication between
FAPI and whatever called drupal_get_form; your submit cannot actually
render a form (it returns a value to redirect to, not output) so the
only way you can do this without hacking fapi like I did is to set a
You could also install CTools and use the form wizard tool which this is
a nice example of, and in fact might make a lovely example of how to do
a more complex confirm form than the ones that currently exist.
