Subject Re: another communicator bug

No, I typed in "http://foo/bar/" the *FIRST* time, and it CACHED it as if
a permanent redirect from http://foo/bar -> http://foo/bar/ happened.  I
had never typed in "http://foo/bar".  This is a bug -- it never made the
request for "http://foo/bar" to learn of a permanent redirect.

Try going to these in this order:

and look at PATH_INFO.
