It is not your IdP. Definitely, absolutely, totally impossible.

I think it has to be some step you're undertaking that is either
misdocumented or that you're just doing by rote, but it can't be
coincidence that yours keep failing.

I think I mispoke earlier also...the POST issue would be involving ISAPI
extensions, not the filters. I would look for some kind of extension via
script mapping or something like that that is set to run globally or ahead
of the SP extension for .sso requests. That's what seems to be most likely
to be consuming the POST. I said filter, but that's wrong, filters do not
have access to the POST data in general.

I would say that something in the IIS setup is getting in there are
fouling it up, maybe something unusual that you install by default and
others don't.
