A check of the web server logs shows the user client (Safari) is submitting the form "POST" request to the server two times within a few seconds. A Google search returns several results for Safari double-submitting forms. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3186304/form-submitted-twice-in-chrome-safari in particular suggests that Safari my require slightly different Javascript code than other browsers in order to prevent the default form submit() action, as we are doing in AtoM.
