Hello Francois,

I think I also ran into a redirection bug.

I did a HEAD request on
"http://www.htmlvalidator.com/phorum/read.php3?num=2&thread=49&action=1&".

It was redirected to "http://www.htmlvalidator.com/list.php3?num=2".

I saw this in the web log:
192.168.0.8 - - [20/Jun/2000:23:46:27 -0500] "HEAD
/phorum/read.php3?num=2&thread=49&action=1& HTTP/1.0" 302 0 "-" "CSE HTML
Validator Professional (http://www.htmlvalidator.com/)"
192.168.0.8 - - [20/Jun/2000:23:46:28 -0500] "HEAD
http://www.htmlvalidator.com/list.php3?num=2 HTTP/1.0" 404 0 "-" "CSE HTML
Validator Professional (http://www.htmlvalidator.com/)"

Notice the "HEAD http://www.htmlvalidator.com/list.php3?num=2 HTTP/1.0".

Shouldn't it be "HEAD /list.php3?num=2 HTTP/1.0"

The result of this was the 404 when it shouldn't have been.

I'm using the latest version as far as I know (ICS.ZIP, 996,169 bytes).

Thanks,
