    Hi,

    I'm using WordPress 3.5.1 with Redirection 2.2.13.

    I get a redirect loop when I change the categories for a post from one thing, to another, and back.

    Workflow to reproduce this:

    1) Create post under category ONE. Publish.
    URL is: /blog/ONE/post

    2) Update post, adding category TWO. Update Post.
    URL is: /blog/ONE/post

    3) Update post, remove category ONE. Update post.
    URL is: /blog/TWO/post

    4) Update post, add back category ONE. Update post.
    REDIRECT LOOP.

    The 'modified posts' section of the Redirection plugin is where these rules are being set. Perhaps the Redirection plugin should check whether the current set of redirections would cause a redirect loop, and either alert an admin or disable the redirect (especially in cases like this).
