Suppose I have two forms with a submit-button on 
each.  The first form takes "submit=Form1" and in 
response, redirects the user to Form2.  On this 
form, "submit=Form2." 
Trouble is, when I click the button having 
arrived on Form2, I might see an error message 
(from my app) like "Unknown submit=Form1".  In 
other words, Form2 telling me that it's getting a 
value that it doesn't understand:  it is getting 
a submit-value that is lagging-behind or 
out-of-date.  (Value should have been 'Form2'.) 
I saw this after upgrading PHP.  I see similar 
problems with familiar tools like phpMyAdmin, 
which doesn't update values when editing database 
tables because of this effect. 
It's bewildering and hard-to-explain, but very 
real and very, very urgent.

I don't believe or accept this closure.  You 
folks close bugs as "bogus" with a stock-reply 
much too quickly. 
This is found in 4.3.0-dev built from source on 
Oct 24, 2002 with options: 
 './configure' '--with-apxs' '--with-mysql' 
'--with-exec-dir' '--with-regex' '--with-gettext' 
'--with-jpeg-dir' '--with-png' '--with-zlib' 
'--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-debugger' 
'--enable-sockets' '--enable-sysvsem' 
'--enable-sysvshm' '--enable-track-vars' 
'--with-xml' '--with-imap' '--with-kerberos' 
I described the behavior I am seeing very, very 
clearly.  It looks like the forms are reacting to 
"old" POST input.

What I was expecting to get is a simple, short example script that I can just cut'n'paste and run on my dev server
to see the problem with my own eyes. If you had bothered reading the information provided in the URL that is included
in that "stock-reply", I wouldn't have to be wasting my time
telling you this.

Please do remember that PHP is an opensource project and we're all volunteers here. It also means that we're not getting PAID for doing this..
