$_POST issue - has to be my conf, right?

I have a linux dev server and I’m trying to setup a sandbox environment under windows 7.  Things were going along swimmingly until I run into an issue where I can’t seem to find $_POST data from my CI_Controller sub-classes. 

I’m assuming there’s got to be some sort of configuration issue here but neither Google nor IRC have yielded a solution.  Here are some minimized examples illustrating my problem.

This (PHP only) works under both linux and windows:

FORM method="post">
input type="text" name="test" id="test" />
input type="submit" />
br/><pre><? print_r$_POST ); ?></pre>

This works under linux but on my local the dump of $_POST always shows as Array( )

class Hello3 extends CI_Controller {

public function index()
//echo 'Hello World!';
echo '<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Hello, world!</TITLE></HEAD>
<FORM method="post">
<input type="text" name="test" id="test" />
<input type="submit" />

print_r$_POST );

Thanks in advance for the kind and gentle way in which you have chosen to show me what a fool I am.

Dang it - I thought I was posting this into a different forum.  I will be removing this from the “General Discussions” forum directly.

Edit:  Turns out I can’t delete this, nor move it.  Again, very sorry to have put this into the wrong place.  New post was made over here:  http://ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/219757/  (Help, is this a bug?).  Here’s hoping an admin will happen along and nuke this thread.  red face
