comment Long user agent field in HTTP header
Another possibility: such request was done programmatically (not a real browser but custom program, e.g. PHP/Python/Java script or whatever) where all request headers were built manually .. and some of them were built wrong (due to programmer error .. or buggy library that was used). In any case -- this should fall under "fake UA" case.

Either a fake UA ... or your app somehow got it wrong -- it looks more like a cookie data...

comment 301 directory redirect exclude subdirectory
1) Have you restarted Apache after such changes? It is required to re-read httpd.conf file -- any changes there are not get picked up automatically (compared to .htaccess) 2) just FYI: this will redirect all in redirect folder except /redirect/example (I mean, /redirect.example/1.html will not be redirected) 3) Since you have access to httpd.conf, you can enable rewrite logging (on max level) and see why that particular request is failing

comment 301 directory redirect exclude subdirectory
I do not think you can do such exclusion with RedirectPermenent directive -- you need to use more powerful mod_rewrite where you can create much more powerful rules (compared to simple rules available for RedirectPermanent).

comment Should I log the price when an item is added to a cart?
Basket content (item id, title, quantity and price) should be stored in session (server side, of course). Session can be stored in file (traditional approach), RAM, DB or whatever. You can make session valid for 1 hour (or any other interval) since last basket activity and re-fetch current price if necessary. P.S. In my place we do honour price for 24 hours regardless of price changes (and if we are unable to supply that item at that price we simply communicate with customer explaining the reasons; making full refunds/charging extra if necessary -- we are fine with that as it's very rare).

comment What's wrong with this redirect rule set? (IIS7)
Your last rule .. it will create infinite redirect since you do not check if you are already on HTTPS or not (you always redirect to secure protocol, even if you are already there).
