Thanks! This is definitly a critical regression, caused by my recent  
mkdir-with-children changes. It looks like I broke the HTML-form style  
of mkdir, by assuming that POST t=mkdir would always be done  

I'm not yet sure what the best fix is. I suspect that it will be to  
change web/unlink.py's POSTUnlinkedCreateDirectory to pay attention to  
the Content-Type header, and only complain about non-empty bodies when  
it is not that www-form-encoded type. And of course we need a test  
that constructs a form-based mkdir call and makes sure it works.

I'll think about this further tonight.
