I believe that correct behavior of servlet engine is to not mess with 
redirect URL but send them to browser without change, and browser should 
interpret them.
Thus, redirect without starting "/" should work without problem.

WebSphere (some 4.0.?? versions ) is known to do weird things with 
redirect URLs, grep Cocoon sources for "WebSphere" to see a workaround.
