Yes, they notice that the page doesn't work, and "to fix it", they
press the same button several more times, just in case the first time
the browser didn't thought that they did wanted to submit the form. It
gets on my nerves whenever I see such behavior, but so far I haven't
been sucessful in order to make them understand that clicking it again
won't fix anything, just make things worse.

I'm not stating anything about the Workers themselves, I haven't
studied them and I don't know if that example is valid or not.
