After you protect a redirect, you are automatically redirected to its target, which is inconsistent with editing (after you save a redirect, you see its content, not target page) and inconvenient (you often need to add the redirect to [[Category:Protected redirects]] after protecting it). Here is a little patch that fixes it by adding &redirect=no to URL after protecting a redirect.
Fixed in r23304.
I didn't use the patch because there's no point loading the page record just to conditionally add something which is completely harmless to the query string.
