bwshare has been running for a while, even before the new validator  
was up. It is supposed to only catch people being a little nervous on  
the reload button, but I agree it is perhaps a bit strict- I was  
caught by it by surprise a few times.

When It happens, the best you can do is leave it alone for a minute  
or two.

I'll speak to our sysadmin team to tweak the bwshare parameters.

Thanks,
