Hi Magnus

In addition to getting HttpHost out of the execution context, you may

(1) cast HttpRequest to HttpUriRequest in order to get the full request

(2) extend or replace the default RedirectHandler with a custom one and
implement whatever redirect handling logic you deem appropriate

Hope this helps
