An obvious guess is that the other clients are following the redirects to 
some sort of resolution.  Take a look at network traffic between the 
client and the server to confirm this.  An excessive number of redirects 
(circular or otherwise) might be an indication of some sort of problem on 
the server, which the circularRedirects property can alert you to.  From 
RequestConfig:

    /**
     * Determines whether circular redirects (redirects to the same 
location) should
     * be allowed. The HTTP spec is not sufficiently clear whether 
circular redirects
     * are permitted, therefore optionally they can be enabled
     * <p/>
     * Default: <code>false</code>
