        You are correct that I'm trying to use GET. I followed your
suggestion and did a packet capture comparing the two. The data was
identical, but it led me to the solution - which was that the site in
question did not respond correctly unless it had the appropriate Cookie,
even though there was no authentication taking place. Once I extracted that
and made the appropriate changes to the cURL parameters, it worked
correctly.

        Thanks!
