Turns out it was an SSL failure. Thanks, Graeme.

For those who might be interested, the solution to my problem with the
browser redirection loop was that the CN in my certificate didn't
share the same domain as the weblogin server. Not realizing that this
was a requirement, when I created the CSR I set the CN to "testing" or
something equally useless.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.
