Strange problem with url redirecting when clicking on a link

Yeah, i agree with you, i don't understand how a request addressed to 
port 81 can be logged and processed by varnish which listens on port 80. 
Apache should receive this !

Anyway, thanks for your feedback. I'll try to contact the guys who are 
in charge of the loadbalancing and of the routing.
