[Koha] problem with duplicate entries

I had at first suspected bad practise (misuse of the 'back' button) to be the cause of our duplicate entries problem in IE7, but then I tested it myself.  Upon hitting the 'Save' button on the 'Add MARC Record' screen, two biblios would be created with no warning.  It almost seemed as if the 'Save' button was receiving a slow double-click...
Of course, this was with the first release candidate of Koha 3, so I'm not sure if that was a factor.

We've had duplicated entries using Chrome, it was related to the use
of the "back" button on the browser after saving a record and going
back for a correction, and saving again.
