DPM response URL handling -- META refresh

Hi -- been using the AuthNet DPM process for about 2 years now.  Works great overall...  we process a couple hundred orders per day on our site using DPM.


Occasionally, some people have trouble with the response URL and how it parses the good/bad response using the META refresh tag.  Evidently, DPM requires a second or so to validate the HTTP headers of the response URL before redirecting to a "declined/invalid card # page" or "receipt page".  Some people's browsers/firewalls (very few) do not allow META refresh or they error out on it.


I've tried lots of other techniques to work around it and all of them result in a message from AuthNet that "Your script timed out while we were trying to post transaction results to it.".


Anyone else experience issues with META refresh and come up with a good solution?




Here is the code I am using: on the response page (# == encapsulated variable)


<html><head><script language="javascript">
</head><body><noscript><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=#redirect_url#"></noscript></body></html>
