Right, so I'm doing a little hacking at MeatBall:CrystalPalace tonight instead of studying for my midterm (having achieved brain freeze), and I get to the point where I need to do a HTTP redirect. No problem, I just do a simple

     print "Location: $url\n\n";

which adequately makes MSIE4 load the right page. All is good...

Until I read the location bar. Instead of pointing to crystal.pl?Foo%20Bar, it's pointing to just crystal.pl! Crap!

I'm dieing everywhere trying to trace this bugger. Then I remember seeing and fixing the same thing when Cliff upgraded UseModWiki to do the same thing. "How did I fix it?" I wonder. "How did I fix it?"

Bammo. I remember. I close MSIE, reopen it, try it again. Sure enough, the location bar shows the correct URL. What was wrong? MSIE4's cache. @?$#(*&!!!
