If you have multiple pages on your form, you could put the submit function
in the page close event. Or if you have some buttons which the user always
has to use before logging off, you could use those.

You might also try to use one single field (instead of all of them) to do
the submit. This would also prevent the looping.

Another possibility is to introduce a flag which is set whenever the user
changes something, and to modify the submit script in all your fields to
look if the flag has been set. If so, reset the flag and submit.

Hope, this can help.
