I did'nt test it for a while, now but, in about the POST method - i
don't never use the GET one, because its always possible security holes
-, at least, i got the problem in using the 2.5 engine too ;-( I had a
dedicated test stack, there, on one of my boxes. I will test again, as
soon as i will find it back...
