I've reduced the redirect loop down to this:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=meta_refresh.html">

In minefield, the location.replace happens first and the meta refresh is ignored, thus the user lands on location_replace.html. In WebKit, the meta refresh overrides the location replace and the user lands on meta_refresh.html. I'm not sure what the specced behavior is here.

The developer.apple page falls victim to this differences with this line that I don't think the author expected to be reached:
<meta id="refresh" http-equiv="refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=_index.html"><!-- Needed for iPad redirects -->
