This is a perfectly fine Location: header. libcurl has no problems with this.

This however, is a cookie you receive. You got several of them. But you don't
send any back when you follow the location:. I bet the server doesn't expect
or like that.

IE also sends the proper cookies in the second request. You don't.

You can fix this by using COOKIEFILE or COOKIEJAR.

(I'm not saying it'll automaticly work because you do this, I'm just showing
you one obvious difference between your request and what IE would do. There
are others as well, such as the referer and user-agent fields etc.)
