This is incorrect.

"The Location response-header field is used to redirect the recipient to a location other than the Request-URI for completion of the request or identification of a new resource. (...) The field value consists of a single absolute URI."

If it starts with a /, you are being redirected to a local file, and we purposedly forbade that because of security concerns.
