Nothing fancy, but I've added a call in RT_SiteConfig.pm to:

     Set($CanonicalRedirect, 1);

and then modified Redirect() with a one-liner to this:

     sub Redirect {
         my $redir_to = shift;
         untie $HTML::Mason::Commands::session;
         my $uri = URI->new($redir_to);
         my $server_uri = URI->new($RT::WebURL);

         # If the user is coming in via a non-canonical
         # hostname, don't redirect them to the canonical host,
         # it will just upset them (and invalidate their credentials)
         if ((!defined $RT::CanonicalRedirect || $RT::CanonicalRedirect == 0) &&
             $uri->host  eq $server_uri->host &&
             $uri->port eq $server_uri->port) {


That preserves the current behavior by default, only doing a canonical 
redirect if CanonicalRedirect is set to some non-zero value.
