As far as suggestions:

Has justin actually checked to make sure he's getting the redirect? (I.e.
requested /cmd.exe from his machine?)  I usually do this by hand using
telnet rather than with a browser.  (i.e., "telnet host 80" to connect
then "GET /cmd.exe" once connection has been achieved.)

If he's not getting the redirect, he might try flopping the backslash to a
forward slash in the RedirectMatch command.

They might also add a redirect for root.exe and admin.dll

I've also added one for /default.ida

I hope this helps
