Comment (by hakre):

 Thanks for taking the time to report your issue.

 Generally spoken you can have a number of redirects after each other,
 that's not a problem per-se. Browsers can deal pretty well with that, at
 least from what I've learned over the last years, I never had a problem
 with a redirect chain unless you don't create a loop.

 It might be seen as a waste of resources as the application needs to get
 loaded another time to just generate the second redirect but I have no
 idea how much overhead that really is I must admit.

 However, I won't consider a redirect a risk for plugin to cause problems.
 If a plugin is breaking the first redirect, then the plugin already is
 problematic regardless how many redirects are chained.

 If you run into a problem regarding a plugin and redirect please tell more
 about that problem. What's the risk you're fearing? Such additional
 feedback might lead to a far better solution, that's why I ask.
