It never gets drawn by the browser. Safari complains of multiple
redirect directives, whereas http-access-log reports on multiple sends

Squirrelmail works perfectly on the same server
I've tested it on every web browser I can think of, from Mozillla to

is indeed returning a 302 response to the browser. Hmmm...
