+Summary: HttpWebRequest.AllowAutoRedirect not working for POST method
+Description of Problem:
+HttpWebRequest myRequest = new HttpRequest...
+Setting "myRequest.AllowAutoRedirect = true" doesn't cause the redirection
+to take place automatically, when using POST method. 
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Init a POST HttpWebRequest request to a URL that gets redirected via
+HTTP protocol (for example, with HTTP codes 302 Found or 302 Redirect).
+2. Wait for response.
+Actual Results: We were not redirected automatically
+Expected Results: to be redirected automatically, even when this case is
+not clear (seems that the redirection should take place using GET instead
+of POST)
+How often does this happen? allways
+Additional Information:
+tested with http:// and https:// uris (now that https:// works).
