If a request takes a long time to process, mozilla will re-request the URL 
again and again. This happens on GETs and POSTs. This may be a feature, but 
obviously causes issues if its a credit card payment for example. Seems to do 
it approximately 1 per minute. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a web page which sleeps for say 1 minute 
2.Request that web page in mozilla 
3.Watch the access log 
Actual Results:  
There were multiple requests in the log. 

Expected Results:  
Only requested it once. 

To test this I created a little script in PHP which does: 
exec("sleep 600"); 
This obviously causes the script to take 10 minutes to run. After the script 
is run, looking at the apache access log shows the page was requested numerous 
times. Approximately 1 per minute after the initial 10 minutes.

reporter: looks like you are testing moz 1.2, care to exercise 1.3 or 1.4 alpha
instead?  this may have already been fixed.
