[Tutor] CGI oddity

There is a daemon server and a thin web client which queries the server. 
If, in the server, I change configuration_class.get_action_method() to 
return "post" instead of "get" (so we have """<form ... 
method="post">"""), queries frequently hang. I'd like to have the forms 
use "post" so I don't have to worry about data size.

The thin client pickles and dumps cgi.FieldStorage() to a socket, which 
is then read and deserialized by 
multitasking_manager.handle_oracle_query() in the third line or so, in 
the server.

Can anyone offer a suggestion that will fix or circumvent the hanging if 
I use the "post" method?
