The bug is actually in the browsers that DO convert to
a GET; they should not.  

     Note: When automatically redirecting a POST request after receiving
     a 301 status code, some existing HTTP/1.0 user agents will
     erroneously change it into a GET request.

Also see section 10.3.4, which describes the 303 response
which does what you want, although older software doesn't
support it.
