[resolved] URL trouble with renaming blog post slug and creating new page with same slug (3 posts)

    This is a blog post: http://www.domain.com/absolutely-own.
    This is a new page (not a blog post): http://www.domain.com/absolutely

    The blog post used to be called http://www.domain.com/absolutely, but I wanted this same URL for a new page instead, so I changed the slug to /absolutely-own.

    Problem:
    http://www.domain.com/absoluteLY (with capital letters LY at the end) redirects to http://www.domain.com/absolutely-own
    http://www.domain.com/absolutely works fine.
    I want http://www.domain.com/absoluteLY to redirect to http://www.domain.com/absolutely as one would assume.

    I don't understand what's going on! How can I fix this?

    Is this a problem with the way WordPress maps its urls or domains? Maybe a bug with the permalink structure or architecture?

    I did not find a real solution so I'm resorting to a plugin to force the redirection.
