I can reproduce it.  Lynx's trace shows that it looks for the URL in
its memory, finds it (the right one), then goes to load it.  As I
read the code, it seems that the reason it then POSTs again is that
it still has the post-data at hand for the URL, and just uses its
existence to decide that it's ready to POST in the process of loading.

The simplest solution (which might be correct - will have to check)
would be to discard that data immediately after it is used to POST the form.
