I assume that redirect sets the status code to 303. How should it
otherwise initiate a redirect? So your status setting has no effect.

You might try this:

  self.response.setStatus(301, 'Moved Permanently')
  self.response.setHeader('Location', self.url(o, 'index'))

Maybe that helps.

Best regards,
