Subject Redirect Error
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 13:27:36 GMT

I'm using httpclient 3.1 indirectly through htmlunit. I believe that 
httpclient is used for managing the connection and data transmission. If I'm 
incorrect please forgive me and ignore me :)

I'm sending a GET request and the remote site is sending a 302 response and a 
re-direct address in the form 
http://remotesite.com/exprod/search/../servlet?t=350&manual.html. When I do 
this manually through Firefox and look at whats happening through the 
LiveHTTPHeader plugin, I can see the 302 response code and the URL coming in. 
Firefox redirects to an amended url 
http://remotesite.com/exprod/servlet?t=350&manual.html and gets a 200 response 
and the document manual.html

HttpClient is not "fixing" the URL and is retransmitting 
http://remotesite.com/exprod/search/../servlet?t=350&manual.html which results 
in a 404 error.

Is this a bug or expected behaviour? What do I need to do to get around this
