[Chilli] New Forum topic: Strange behaviour with WISPr-Redirection-URL in 1.2.9

I'm sure this is related to the problem I've described here


The patch was implemented in 1.2.9 and may be breaking functionality in
some situations.

What I find amazing is that the problem described in
http://www.coova.org/node/5115 is exactly what I was experiencing with
previous versions of chilli(<1.2.9). My uamserver was being replaced by
my WISPr redirect and I could no longer authenticate. This patch seems
to work for me (me being 3 dev servers and 2 production servers).

Any thoughts?
