New wp install
Twenty Eleven theme
Static Front and Posts pages configure
With Default Permalinks: NO problem
With Custom Permalinks: REF URL fails to load with Redirect Loop and Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects
Switch back to Default Permalinks and redirect problem disappears.
How can I correct this? I have other sites setup with static pages and custom Permalinks, but other themes, without this problem.
