Hi,

Sending a 302 in response to a POST is a very common practice so that
the browser is redirected to a "normal", non state-changing page after
the POST request has been processed. It is useful in that it allows the
user to reload the resulting page (fetched with GET) without it popping
up a warning dialog, and without re-submitting the request if the user
validates the dialog.

So, a 302 response after a POST should generate a GET to the new URL.
And, of course, without a Content-Length (there's no content in a GET so
it can't have a length, does it?).
