	It shouldn't because they aren't.  This is the
	correct one (with the /):

	HTTP/1.0 200 OK

	Without the /, the server redirects to the correct
	one, but could return something completely different.
	This is why missing the / is a bad thing; it causes 
	unnecessary internet traffic for the redirects.
