not that this is going to help but you are trying to solve a client
problem with a server solution. I don't see your problem as not being
able to 'redirect cleanly' because in my mind, 'RedirectPermanent' is as
clean as you can get but rather the client application apparently
doesn't have enough http skills to deal with the Redirect information it
has been given by the server. Probably some of that is about security
because you really don't want an unsophisticated client to willy nilly
accept redirection to another host/site/URL.
