Ok, I seem to have found a solution to what is IMO stilla bug on the
part of IE 5.1 MAC.

The solution involves adding a return false immediately after the
function call, or after self.close() in a function.

For example:

onsubmit="myFunction(); return false;" // myFunction ends with a


function myFunction() {
	return false;

Either of these solutions seem to work.
