Ouch!  You have two one second browser redirects just to get to that one page.

Might I recommend that you get rid of the META refresh tags and use
Apache's redirect features.  

  DirectoryIndex archives.shtml index.html

or

  Redirect /search/database/index.html
http://www.prophezine.com/search/database/archives.shtml

It wouldn't be very hard to make linkcb() extract the URL from the meta
taga, but I'd suggest getting rid of them instead.  You really don't need
three requests for one page.
