Hey Tab :)

Exactly, the child window is a 'please wait' message.

I thought about the method you mention (and we have similar solutions
in house for other apps), but I need the popup right away: I've got
an intermediate page that does the processing, a suspect WAN on the
client's side, and itchy trigger fingers. I already have pageA
ignoring multiple clicks on the submit button, but I realized I also
have to try and avoid them hitting Reload/Refresh and submitting
again (without reworking the middle-tier logic, which really would be
the BEST place for it, but we all know what happens with an app
already stable and in production ;) )
