Redirect killing dispatch.cgi

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.

the post w/similar issue:

This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.

what is the code for redirect that causes a problem?
