Hi ...

   Wow, how strange, I had the *exact* same thing happen to me.
   I came up with another, not so elegant, but reasonable solution.

   I ended up creating multiple forms on the same page. This may
   not be what you want, but you can see: (pre-production page)

   Takes a little more work (and maintenance) behind the scenes, but
   it seems to serve the purpose.
