Ok, there are two problems :)

The first one is that if you use the cocoon: protocol, the redirect is 
handled internally, so the browser is not redirecting and is never 
notified that a redirect took place. If you want the browser to redirect 
you have to use the fully qualified url (using http). I'm not sure, but 
it could be that we have some input modules generating the full url for 
you, so you might not have to hard code the server name etc. in your 
sitemap. You can check the existing input modules for this. If it's not 
available I would suggest that you either write an input module for this
or do this inside your action.

The second problem is that jsp access does not work for internal 
redirects. And this is a bug.
