There is a possible problem. It appears that you asked for the source
of an https URL. what do you get if you ask for an http URL?

I don't think it's likely, but if you go to an http URL and get a form
with an action= with an http URL and the web server redirects/rewrites
the POST url to https, it can lose the post data. This is the issue of
the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ioA9>.

As I say. I don't think that's likely, but it could explain an
intermittent issue if sometimes you get the page via http and other
times via https.
