Yes, it could be a bug *but* if this happening only sporadically (from 
time to time) or works for you on systems which use a different gateway 
I'm more inclined to think there can be something between your machine 
and Debian PopCon server that is interfering (a proxy or caching 

I would run more tests which means I'd enable the $HTTP post method at 
popcon configuration file again and keep an eye over it :-)
