So am I, so I figured this one out last night.

LPW does not follow redirects automatically when doing a POST.  I think
you can subclass the post request with one new function that says to
follow redirects, but I haven't tried that yet.

I don't know if you just need to keep all of your cookies and do a GET on
the Location:, or if you need to POST to the location, though it's been my
experience (from the CGI side) that POSTs don't redirect well with most
web browsers, so I suspect that the GET will be good enough.
