           Summary: Redirect URL after HTTP 301 not vali
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.cpumag.com/idealbb
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: Cngevpxhaqrefpber at gmail.com

The website 'cpumag.com' is a simple redirect to 'computerpoweruser.com'.
'cpumag.com/idealbb' is therefore a redirect to
'computerpoweruser.com/idealbb', which then redirects to the correct index page
for the IdealBB forum on the server. However, entering 'cpumag.com/idealbb'
does not redirect to 'computerpoweruser.com/idealbb', and therefore instead of
being redirected to the correct index page, you are redirected to an IdealBB
error page. Entering 'cpumag.com' in the address bar correctly redirects to
'computerpoweruser.com', however.

I don't have much behind-the-scenes HTTP knowledge, but I did some packet
sniffing and it seems that for some reason, after Webkit receives a 301 code
and does a GET on the URL of the new location returned (which, it seems, it the
exact same URL, 'cpumag.com/idealbb'), the response from the server (302) gives
a location of 'cpumag.com/idealbb/error...', instead of a location of
'computerpoweruser.com/idealbb/redir...', which then redirects the browser to
the forum.

Accessing the forum via 'computerpoweruser.com/idealbb' with Webkit works
properly; the 302 response gives the valid URL. Also, I can access the forum
via 'cpumag.com/idealbb' properly in both Firefox and Opera, and the 302
response from the server for these browsers gives the proper
'computerpoweruser.com/idealbb/redir...' URL.

Not sure if this is an IdealBB issue or Webkit issue but since Opera works,
I'll just assume it's a Webkit issue. I've seen a few bugs (#17692, #17868)
that look like they could possibly be the same issue, but I'm not positive.
