I thought so. But, I looked and looked and did not find any way to access that flag either in HttpClient or in Curl (gb.net.curl).

The version of libcurl on my system is libcurl4, Version 7.37.0-16.3.1 (libcurl.so.4.3.0).

BTW, I just tried again to see if it was just a transient issue, but, no, I still get neither 301 nor 302.
