Check the server headers returned when you request the given URL. You may find that a mis-coded script is returning a Redirect status (301, 302, or 303) response with *no* Location header.

I use the Live HTTP Headers add-on for Firefox. There are several other good ones. An HTTP headers checker is basic Webmaster kit.
