I guess something MUST have happened! ;-)

I'm pretty convinced I see where the problem is as well. The problem is that
the code treats a Location: to a different host special, and it should do it
for plain host auth but it also does this wrongly for proxy auth...

Around line 410 in lib/http.c

I'll write up a test case that can repeat this and work on a fix.
