This appeared recently on 1.3.1, and is still occurring after an upgrade to 1.3.2 and really has me stumped, so any help would be great.

You can re try after disabling "AreYouAHuman? 5", it may causing this problem.
Still occurs after doing so and switching to reCaptcha.

Edit: It only seems to be happening with users that share IPs

Hummm , you can try after disable all plugins/add-ons, if problem continue, then wait for real experts.


Anyone been able to shed any light on this, it doesn't happen with all users. Additional info:

  • Running apache httpd 2 w/ php 5.5.13 and opcache

If this is not happening with all users then it will be a security plugin or server firewall issue, did you re-tried with disabling all add-ons?
