[wp-hackers] Embedding forms in Wordpress

I think that I'm running into a similar problem and was wondering if 
someone could point me in the right direction...

I'm writing a form based plugin which outputs the form like so:
> $form  = "<form action='";
> $form .=    get_permalink();
> $form .= "' method='post'>";
> $form .= "<input type='text' name='my_name' />";
> $form .= "<input type='radio' name='my_action' value='one' />";
> $form .= "<input type='radio' name='my_action' value='two' />";
> $form .= "<input type='submit' name='submit_form' value='submit it' />";
> $form .= "</form>";
If I have the permalink rewrite option turned off, I am able to return 
all of the variables in any of the normal ways (and they all show up 
when using print_r( $_POST ); to display the array).  But when I turn on 
the permalink rewrite option all of the variables disappear.

If anyone has some ideas as to what might be going on, please let me know.
