These POST problems can be hard to debug.

With some effort, you can use the 'client' program to send post
requests. You have to put the content of your request in a file,
say 'foo', then you execute this command

        % client -m POST -P foo ''

It might help find out if the request is getting cut off, or if the
reply is getting cut off, or ...?
