Igor S posted a couple of 0.6.x patches in a thread called static POST  
in mid-August this year which made named locations and POST work as  
expected for me in 0.6.32. We have it in production and it doesn't  
appear to have caused us any problems as yet. Igor said he would merge  
the patch for 0.6.33.

Best wishes
