In the original issue we had, we used mod_proxy for forwarding the request to
an apache tomcat webserver.
The request didn't arrive at the apache tomcat if the string "poste" was
included somewhere, while the apache HTTPD returned a time-out from the apache
The request did get processed immediately if the string "poste" was not

In order to pin down the exact issue, I've removed the apache tomcat and
mod_proxy from the process.
This is why I tried making a simple static html page instead.
I know POST methods aren't the most logical thing to do for retrieving a static
HTML, but the same POST method works if you would change the textfield to any
other word not containing "poste".
So because of this, I assumed that apache had a default handler for this in a
standard clean installation.

Because the same word seems to trigger the same issue, either when proxying
requests to an apache tomcat, or when apache httpd is handling the request, I
am assuming this is related to apache HTTPD.

I am not an apache HTTPD specialist, so any hints in what I can do to further
explain, or of course solve, the issue are welcome.
