Which browser are you running? And how recent is your OpenACS installation? I patched a problem similar to this and the patch made it into the distribution for 4.6, but it was not in 4.5. I'd also be willing to bet that when you said "browser's request line changes to 'http://www.server.com:8000/acs-admin';" it actually changed to httpS://www.server.com:8000/acs-admin--that was what my patch fixed. It works around a bug in IE where IE will not redirect properly to https on a non-standard port.
I can send you the patch file itself if you can't update to 4.6 from CVS.
