When a category link is accessed in the blog using non-default language, the request goes to endless redirect loop. Here is a quick-n-dirty fix to hide the problem. Include the following to theme's functions.php file

// A kludge for Redirect Loop issue for WordPress 3.0-RC1-15069 + qTranslate devel 2010.04.20 
// 2010.05.31 22:47:37+0300 - Mikael Willberg (mig@hyper.fi)
function mig_redirect_canonical_qt_kludge($redirect_url,$requested_url=null)
	// Why this is sometimes empty ?
	if (!$requested_url) {return false;}

Everything seems to work with this, but who is to blame WordPress ? qTranslate ?
