Auto-created redirect to homepage (2 posts)

    I am using the Redirect plugin on a multilingual site that uses WPML for the multilingual functionality.

    Something very strange is happening:

    Each time I add a post in Swedish (the secondary language) a redirect is automatically created.

    This is a redirect from the Swedish (secondary language) homepage:
    to the just created post in Swedish. This makes it impossible to reach the Swedish homepage.

    This happens with "URL Monitoring ... Monitor new posts" both turned on and turned off.

    So the effect of this is that anyone who tries to go to the Swedish home page (e.g. from a search) lands on the most recent post.

    The primary language (English, with the home page http://www.bkwine.com) does not have this behaviour.

    Can you help?

    To try and fix this, I removed all redirections, uninstalled and removed the plugin and cleared all caches.

    I then reinstalled the plugin.

    The same thing happens again. When I create a new post in Swedish (the secondary language) a redirect is created (automatically, by the plugin) that redirects from the Swedish home page (http://www.bkwine.com/sv/) to the recently created Swedish post. (The option "Monitor new posts" is currently turned off.)
