Hi Jason --

When it did/does occur, it is during the busiest times of the day – not the
best time to be debugging.

As far as I can tell, these double charges are due to latency. User charges
an item, hits refresh, and charges it again. I associate the problem with
the refresh button.

I'd be interested in seeing debug output from the console from when
that happens, but beware, it's not something you'd want to share with
a public mailing list or public bug tracker since it'd contain patron
