Search the list archives, this has come up before.  I override the validate
method and decide whether or not to call super.validate().  On the first
page view, the form will not have been "submitted" so you can check whether
the request was POSTed, put a hidden field on the form and look for it in
the request, etc.

Turning off validation is certainly one way to do it!
