GET can need extra server configuration because there is no way to
specify a charset in the request (it's actually supposed to be UTF-8
percent encoded per the standards, but sometimes not configured that
way for historical back compatibility I guess).

When you use POST, you can and should specify the charset.  If you are
doing this, it should work.
