Well, according to RFC 2616, Section "10.3.3 302 Found", the response does not 
have to contain anything:


   The temporary URI SHOULD be given by the Location field in the
   response. Unless the request method was HEAD, the entity of the
   response SHOULD contain a short hypertext note with a hyperlink to
   the new URI(s).

It doesn't specify what to do in such cases, but I would imagine that an empty 
Location field should not prevent the user agent from redirecting at all.
