Register page doesn't lead to Welcome Page

Hi there,

I have configured a page to be loaded after the registration process is complete, called
"Welcome".

See this screenshot of the Membership Options:

However, after signup is complete, this page is not loaded at all:
See http://screencast.com/t/I1XBcoqHJd
and http://screencast.com/t/mkUG9ciqkqR

It just 'sits' there. How can I get people to redirect?

Also, when a person has subscribed via this system, he is shown as Inactive in the all members overview. How can I make sure this person is activated straightaway?

Kind regards,
Alex
