Yes, working with redirects is less than obvious.  When you are
redirected by one, the page you see will have a line right beneath
the title saying "(Redirected from Xxx...)", which is a link to
the redirect page itself.  Click that, and you'll be able to edit
the redirect, unwatch it, whatever.  You can also manually add
"&redirect=no" to the URL of a page.
