I have a webapp running on Jetty 7.2.2. The webapp includes a proxy servlet which forwards requests to a Bugzilla installation running on localhost, port 80 (Apache serves the Bugzilla pages).
When I request a particular URL through the webapp, the Apache access log shows a response as expected; and the jetty request log does the same, but the web page isn't displayed in the browser, and no error message is generated.
Looking closer at the Apache log, I see that the initial request produces HTTP status 302, i.e. that the resource requested has moved. A second request is then made which returns '200 4081', i.e. the request has succeeded and 4081 bytes of data have been returned. However, the Jetty log indicates a '200 0' response, i.e. a successful fetch but zero bytes returned. If I access Bugzilla through Apache (i.e. not through my webapp on localhost:8080), all works just fine.
How can I configure my webapp to ensure that moved resources are displayed? Is it a Jetty configuration issue, or do I have to adjust my Apache configuration?

Update: things go wrong when I log in to Bugzilla through my webapp. If I'm not logged in I can search for bugs (but obviously not update them). If I log in, the search page just 'goes nowhere', i.e. zero bytes are fetched.
Looking closer at the link targets displayed on the various pages within Bugzilla, I can see that when logged in, the link is of type 'http://localhost/bugzilla' when it should be of type 'http://localhost:8080/dash/bugzilla'. When not logged in, the links are correct. The reason zero bytes are returned must be to do with this difference. Very strange .....
