I've built and installed that version of apreq, but I still am getting
that -12229 error code.

The strange thing is that the error does not occur with all POST requests.
I wrote a CGI that simply returns a Content-Type and Refresh header and 
it works fine.

Unfortunately I didn't write the CGIs that I'm trying to debug and 
they're not written very well, so it's possible that the author's doing
something stupid to cause the error.
