If you link from an external site to a page of type "external URL", Typo3 doesn't forward to the configured external URL. The page shown is the page with the id of the "external URL page" and the page keeps empty (no content).

Is not fixed in 4.1

It is a feature. Read issue 5470 for solution.

Just wanted to note that I had this problem in 4.1 too, I updated my installation to 4.5 recently and I am not experiencing this since then. I also think that this was fixed in 4.2.

I suggest to mark this "resolved".
