It's the 'status 301' line that does it. Setting a location is not, in 
general, enough.

but you should use a status of 301 (permanent redirection) for the 
proper effect (302 - temporary redirection - is probably not what you 
want,  most browsers will display the redirected page, but the 
non-redirected URL).
