The end action will _always_ be run, there is no need to detach to the  
end action.

However I'm not sure what doing $c->detach in auto will do (I guess  
the same as returning 0 - i.e. stop further actions from running), but  
I'm not sure - you should probably return 0 (to stop further dispatch)  
rather than detaching in the auto action..

However as noted elsewhere in this thread, I'd seriously recommend  
using Chained dispatch rather than auto for this (if for no other  
reason then it avoids the re-entering auto in the next request after  
you redirect issue).
