My cheap trick around this is to have an onClick event on the form submit
button that brings up a small window with a progress note in it, and an
animated gif of a prgress bar.

As the page does not unLoad until the upload is finished, I use the unLoad
event of the body tag to close that progress window.

Generally works really well for me. I can show you an example if you like.
