Although this is not exactly oopsing, it's blocking access to this page, so I think it counts as critical. I can reproduce it.

You can't read that URL, or at least I can't in Chrome, because it
continuously redirects to itself.

That said, I'm not sure how someone is getting to that URL, so we
could mark this incomplete pending knowing the referring page. I can
see the contents of that file ok in
<http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~novacut/novacut/trunk/view/head:/novacut/schema.py>

summary: - loggerhead give too many redirects

Adnane, what I'm asking is, what link did you click in Launchpad that
took you to the page with the 'too many redirects' error?

To reproduce, start from http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~launchpad-pqm/launchpad/stable/view/head:/lib/canonical/launchpad/webapp/dbpolicy.py . Click on 'webapp' in the file's path (between the changes/files toolbar and the 'i' icon links). The URL is now looking polluted. Click on 'dbpolicy.py' in the tree again and wait for your error page.
