Seems like this ought to be easily doable with a boolean somewhere. Did we run the callbacks for continuation asdfa123? If so, don't run them. No redirect necessary, no double callbacks being run on refresh. Still have the "do you want to resubmit this form" alert, but I've never been concerned about that and don't particularly understand why people are.
