HTTP Redirect bug - more info

This is related to Amaya's "HTTP Redirect bug."

When submitting a form using the POST method, 
if Amaya receives a redirect HTTP header, it
tries to POST to that URL also. In other words,
Amaya does the following:

HTTP out: POST: <url to cgi script>
HTTP  in: <redirect to new url - an HTML document>
HTTP out: POST: <url of HTML document>

The last POST is incorrect. Amaya should try a 
GET for that document:

HTTP out: POST: <url to cgi script>
HTTP  in: <redirect to new url - HTML doc>
HTTP out: GET: <url of HTML doc>

Although I believe that this is related to the
"HTTP Redirect bug," I'm not certain that it's
the exact same one. 

Happy bug hunting :-)
