I've just discovered that with some popular browsers, including the
latest from Netscape, if you do a GET on a URL with a fragment (an
anchor, a "#something" on the end), and the server issues a redirect
(302) so that a different document is fetched, then the browser will
NOT seek to the anchor to the ultimately viewed document -- you end up
staring at the beginning of the page.

Do people think this is
a) a bug
b) a feature
c) none of the above ?
