Lame rule creation could give three redirects...
example.com/cms/page.php -> example.com/page.php -> example.com/page -> www.example.com/page
before content is delivered at the right URL.
If you examine the set of rules above (21 to 25), it doesn't matter what you request:
there will be a single step redirect to the canonical URL -> www.example.com/
Likewise, for any of these...
just one redirect step to get to the canonical URL -> www.example.com/page
