Page_Load event fires twice when streaming a PDF.

P: n/a
When attempting to write a PDF stream to the web browser,
the Page_Load event fires twice if a user has Internet
Explorer configured to 'Check for newer versions of stored
pages: Every visit to the page'. This is causing me
tremendous grief. Here's an abstract of code to prove the
problem. New FirstReport() is a blank report. Can
someone please tell me how to stop this behaviour?

Thanks Greatly
