Could this be caused by a web proxy that's improperly caching the form
page and serving it to the client in spite of the fact that csrf_token
has changed?  Or improperly indicating to the client that the page
hasn't changed so that the client displays from its its own cache
instead of requesting it again from the server?

Amit, I think a good test here would be to clear your browser's cache,
reload the subscription form, and see if you get the same error.  The
experts may have a better suggestion, but this is what I'd try.
