Description

While testing with telnet I saw that using
Get / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.test.me

does always return a 301 with location set to http://www.test.me/, so maybe creating an infinite loop. I think it shouldn't do that...

You must have a configuration error - HTTP requests that only provide a Host: header work fine. Also, how on earth do you make the leap from this behaviour to the User-Agent header being a factor?

Configuration might be a reason, however, the server runs fine otherwise. So I guess it should not behave like that. Anyway, the 'leap' I make is simple: If I add a User-Agent header, I get the normal expected behaviour, if it's missing I get the behaviour described above. My configuration includes simple vhosting through rewriting the url after checking the host.

Probably config mistake, but config is missing so we cannot help.
