hi, having a maddening problem with a redirects between controllers.

app is working fine on my two local machines, a mac and a pc, with
webrick and lighttpd/cgi on either machines.

i move it to my hosting provider and try to get it working with apache +
most of it works, but it fails at a specific spot, and causes
dispatch.cgi to
hang indefinitely. nothing shows up at all in the rails logs, which
makes me
think it might be an apache or .htaccess issue. i have .htaccess set up

it hangs on a redirect_to call -- i see the redirect happen in the logs,
then no
sign it ever makes it to the controller/method it's redirecting to.
redirects in the app work fine, but this one, unlike the others,
redirects from
one controller to another.

i found a post elsewhere, which describes a similar problem. per what's
said in
that post, i tried removing all the logging statements in the relevant
of my app, to no avail. i think that might be a red herring, but who

if anyone has any ideas, i'd be grateful. been banging my head on this
for days,
and it's driving me crazy.

what is the code for redirect that causes a problem?
