I believe the issue you describe is the same as 0012492.

As a workaround until a permanent fix can be found, I personally use a Firefox plugin called Lazarus which saves forms as you submit them, then you can recover the data easily. Alternatively, you can always copy the text from your update to the clipboard as a safety net.

I get the error

Invalid form security token. Did you submit the form twice by accident?

Please use the "Back" button in your web browser to return to the previous page. There you can correct whatever problems were identified in this error or select another action. You can also click an option from the menu bar to go directly to a new section.

I don't know how much this helps. the tokens I make for my apps are time-based+ a few other things - if you stored yours in a session, HOW you make use of it is very important to having success in a form. I typically put the token in a hidden form field rather than session only, the reason being that SESSIONS EXPIRE.

I may get back to finishing my form entry after a 1-2 days do to the nature of life in general happening. I can't control everything in life.

I don't know what code is killing the security token.
