[BUG] IE8 will endlessly request favicon.ico on self-301
If a request to a favicon returns a 301 to the original URL, IE8 will
endlessly request the favicon (in the background, of course).

To repro:
1. Start a web proxy (fiddler/charles)
2. Navigate th01 (dot) deviantart (dot) com
3. Look at the proxy output

Expected:
The 301 to the same url should either be ignored, or be stop at the redirect
limit (15 by default if I'm not mistaken)

Actual:
IE endlessly requests the same URL, even after the original tab is closed,
until the entire application is closed

PS. The above URL is not spam, it's simply the site I noticed the bug on

Unfortunately reporting bugs here is mostly a waste of time. You need to
post this on the MS Connect site which is for product feedback and bug
reports: http://connect.microsoft.com/

I can confirm though that I can reproduce this here on IE8 XP SP3 in
no-addons mode.
