My finger of suspicion is the web server.

>MicrosoftOfficeWebServer: 5.0_Pub

Which I imagine is some flavour of IIS.  Does CF officially support this 

You might want to 301 redirect instead of using cflocation (which does a 302 
redirect "Moved Temporarily") , try this:

<cfheader statuscode="301" statustext="Moved Permanently">
<cfheader name="Location" value="#the new location here#">
