Is the for *exactly* the same every time, or are their fields that change each
time it's submitted? There's sometimes an authentication "cookie" of sorts
embedded in a hidden form input that's calculated with a Javascript formula.
Without reverse engineering that and sending the correct value each
submission, the server will throw it away.
