Minor bug in request()
Message ID:

There's a small and usually-not-too-interesting bug in the redirection process under UserAgent->request()...
When a server responds with a redirection for a POST request, the object handles the response by sending
the POST to the new address.

In reality (which means - how IE does it, can't argue with the majority), after receiving a redirection to a POST,
IE issues a GET to the new location.

Would be nice to change this on the next release...
