possible bug in colchange.cgi?

when you click on the "change columns link", make changes, and click 
"submit", you get a page that says (in green letters) "Resubmitting 
your query with your new columns". the page automagically refreshes 
itself, and you're back at buglist.cgi.

or something like that.

anyway, at my workplace, anyone using ie doesn't every get the refresh. 
they hang on the "Resubmitting your query" page. 

there is an http proxy here, and i'm wondering if it's stripping off
the headers or something strange. i'll research it more before i actually 
file a bug; i was just hoping someone could jump out and say "i can 
reproduce this" or "you're smoking crack"....
