Description: I've been editing the URL aliases that Sampreethi had for the BID project pages to eliminate capital letters. Now there's an error popping up that says "Oops, looks like this request tried to create an infinite loop. We do not allow such things here. We are a professional website!

I presume this is because Drupal doesn't recognize any change in editing a URL that reads '../Gabon-..' to '../gabon-..'—but is there a way to adjust this so that it doesn't cause this short circuit?

If not, then I probably just need to roll back (or further edit) pages like this example, which you'll only see successfully if you're logged in:]]>

Our site URL is case-insensitive. When an URL alias is changed, the system automatically adds an URL redirect to redirect the old one to the new one. In this case because the new one and the old one are the same to the system, it creates a loop when it tried to provide the correct URL.

Deleting the unnecessary URL alias fixed this issue.
