<form action="list.php" method="post">
    <div class="left_search">
        <div>Search for:</div>
            <input type="text" maxlength="20" name="what" class="signup_textfield" /> in 
                <select name="selection">
                    <option value="">... select ...</option>
                    foreach ($selections as $key => $value) {
                        echo "<option value='$key'";
                            if (isset($selection)) {
                                echo " selected";
                        echo "> {$value} </option>";
            </select> <input type="submit" value="Go!" name="go" /><br />
            <input type="radio" name="exact"  /> Exact match.<br />

I'm replying to this, because even though it is resolved, the answer may be relevant to other users.
The problem is that the two radio elements had a different name.

If you wish to associate radio buttons, they should have the same name attribute. You set the value attribute differently if you are submitting the form.
