Could you provide a little more context with the problem you are having?
When you say HEAD are you referring to the server's HEAD?
When testing this locally (with a relative URL) I can't seem to
reproduce what you are describing. If you could provide a way to
reproduce this I would be able to more easily diagnose the problem.
