But that's kind of my point.  :-)  This is most likely something dumb
and stupid, but looking at log files, guessing about configurations, and
trying various permutations of html code is the slowest way possible to
solve it.  I'd bet $1 that if you saw exactly what was going on you'd
know exactly why the browser first tries a POST and then a GET.  And
doing this is very easy with Ethereal.
