that's great info
(note that you have to be a little bit careful when looking at the
packet trace; you may see a TCP connection with the entire request
header and POST body sent yet it receives no response; then the
browser opens a new TCP connection, sends the request header without
body, and after Timeout seconds gets an error response)

unless you have any single sign-on modules loaded (always a good
target to blame) or other third-party modules which can process the
request body, no other ideas here; possibly the timing of the body
being sent vs. error being triggered would narrow down the
