lynx-dev weird redirect

Noticed this with some 2.8.4 vintage Lynx, downloaded 2.8.5dev.9 and got
the same thing:

  $ lynx
  [Current link is http://www.habeas.comabout/overview.htm]

I misspelled the name of their site -- I typed "habeus" where it should
have been "habeas".  They redirected to the correct site, but without a
trailing slash.  Lynx then based all of the relative URLs on that page
on the prefix "";, sans trailing slash.

I'm sure the redirect was wrong, and should be fixed.  I'm not so sure
whether Lynx was doing something wrong here, or maybe just "not
sufficiently right".  A cross-check with Netscape (4.7, all I had handy)
shows that it takes the redirect in the right spirit.

The redirect looks like:

  HTTP/1.1 302 Found
  Date: Wed, 27 Nov 2002 22:48:09 GMT
  Server: Apache/1.3.12 (Unix) mod_perl/1.24
  Connection: close
  Content-Type: httpd/unix-directory

and would be perfect if there was a trailing "/" on the Location:
