I don't know precisely what "circular forwarding detected" means either. REBOL can be thrown by certain redirects, but gets better with each release. Interestingly, the command works fine in REBOL/View 1.2.1, but only balks on REBOL/Core 2.5 on my Win 98SE. My guess is that /Core 2.6 will fix the problem. To be sure, I would **quickly** place a bug report. Meanwhile, a peak at the source of the HTTP schemes of each version will likely reveal the problem. I would do it, but I'm out of time this morning. Best of luck. --Scott Jones
