[development] form_api: same form called multiple times, wrong form_state values

In Drupal, I recommend staying away from hidden values as they actually do allow for a miniscule possibility of hacking. Instead use '#type' => 'value' which will not present on the rendered form. I have never had any trouble with altering it in multistep forms.

Subject: [development] form_api: same form called multiple times, wrong form_state values
I have a small admin form (2 buttons and a hidden value) that is repeated multiple times (each time the value is different).
Now whenever I access $form_state['values'] from the submit function, the hidden value always returns the data from the first form. When I print out $_POST directly I do get the correct data.
I've been searching this and it seems this is because the form_state is cached. I couldn't find any workaround though, so for the moment working with $_POST. Anyone know the correct way to do this ?
