Form data can be POST'd or GET'd depending on the way you form the
'form' tag.  You're right that POST is generally used but sometimes
the form data are brief and it's advantageous to allow the user to
bookmark the state of the CGI, in which case you should use GET. 
Google and Yahoo searches are a good example.

In this case, where you suspect a bug in processing of the data, it
might be helpful to know whether it affects both cases.  Have you
solved the issue or do you have a small example program?
