I trust you, don't get me wrong. Perhaps it collided with existing
redirections, e.g. a dozen or so redirections I had set up for RSS feeds
(to compensate for 'round-the-clock errors and feeds services that are new
in the business and think that case does not matter).
Assuming that the order of elements does not matter, I inserted the lines
you suggested right before the large collection of RedirectMatch permanent
RedirectPermanent /weblog /Weblog
RedirectMatch permanent ^/weblog/index.php$
RedirectMatch permanent ........
Whether the order makes a difference or not, I am not entirely sure.
