redirect.pl sez Content-Type: application/x-perl

Hello, I am not subscribed to this apparent list "debian-www"
but I have a small gripe about the debian website, and it
seems that your list is the ordained place to send such gripes.

On the main debian page   http://www.debian.org/
near the beginning is a small form to select a local mirror
Action: http://cgi.debian.org/cgi-bin/redirect.pl

This script produces a 302 redirect response, but it unfortunately
contains a header which confuses my antique browser, specifically
the last "Content-Type: application/x-perl                              "

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved                                        
Date: Wed, 23 Oct 2002 19:43:53 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.9 (Unix) Debian/GNU PHP/4.0.3pl1             
Location: http://www.us.debian.org/
Connection: close                                                   
Content-Type: application/x-perl                              

Is it really necessary to insert this strange header in a redirect ?
(especially since the content length of the reply is zero.)

himself no wiser than before," Bokonon tells us.  "He is full of murderous
resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their
ignorance the hard way." -- Kurt Vonnegut, "Cat's Cradle" (and fortune)
