I am running the simplest web2 demo from AWDWR (./example/index) on a
slackware box running WEBrick on RadRails; with firefox and Konqueror
3.4.2 anyway) everything fine; on laptop talking to my linux box,
does it instantaneously; but… IE DOES DO it, but takes a full 31
seconds!!! (The RadRails WEBrick console shows the POST immediately, but
trundles for a full 31 seconds to cough up the change in the text).
