This is a big issue that I wanted to fix one day - I 
finished to code it, but it requires some testing :)
The problem is simple: files such as /foo require an 
additional test, and tests are not immediately taken in 
account. In a "redirect loop", intermediate states are not 
saved, leading to new requests if the link is seen again.
I added a cache for all these states, and test requests 
should not be done twice anymore - please give you feedback 
about this new release.

This shouldn't happend anymore - I hope.

Yep :)
(See beta-2 currently available)

Well, as long as it doesn't crash, everything is fine :)
