I have recently been faced with the following problem:
I am using a certain Perl script to search for names in a flat-file database.
But it has been brought to my attention that, due to a 1-2 sec. delay after the SUBMIT button is pressed,
the user could conceivably click the button several more times. This would spawn unneccesary threads and, perhaps,
eat up server memory.
